Information about Whiteboards

AES @ Home Parents,

Many times during instruction, students use whiteboards with dry erase markers during lessons. This will be the case with AES @ Home as teachers work with students remotely. 

Please use this LINK if you would like to purchase a white board like the one pictured below. I have linked Amazon, but these can be purchased at Office Depot, Staples, etc.  

A Sample Whiteboard 

Whiteboards can also be made from shower board (purchased at Home Depot or Lowe’s). The links below provide several examples of how you can create your own whiteboard for use at home.
