CC Tutor Resource: DIY Tri-Fold Dry Erase Board

Tri-fold Dry Erase Board


I could NOT have made it through my first two years as a Classical Conversations Tutor without this handy, dandy Tri-Fold Dry Erase Board! When a new Tutor asks me the first thing he/she needs to do to prepare to tutor, I immediately burst out with this, “Make a Tri-Fold Dry Erase Board!” Even if you are not a part of Classical Conversations, I would still recommend making one of these to use at home! You will be surprised how many uses you will find for it! It’s inexpensive and simple to make!

To see how to make your own and how I use it in class, read this post from the archives! Enjoy!

Hey fellow CC Tutors? What is your favorite resource(s) for class?!?!?

    I love my board made from these instructions! It was not too tall like some others I saw but tall enough to hold everything. I tutored ABCs and had 3 Foundations students at home. I think some of the best ideas I did were finding “fill-in the blank” worksheets on CC Connected but turning them into games. I laminated them and then had my students at CC and at home work on putting the correct words with the pictures. Everyone had fun! I also made cards with the different moon phases,etc and had the children put them in order. We steered away from competitive games because they did not help (in either place) and folks just got mad. The non-competitive games worked better. 🙂 Keep sharing! I love your ideas!

      This is a GREAT idea!!! Thank you for sharing!!! Was there a certain username that usually had the fill in the blank sheets from CC Connected? I don’t recall seeing those before, but I love this idea! If you can pass along some of the usernames, that would be awesome!! Thanks for reading and commenting! 🙂

        The markerboard I have on hand is 32inches high not 3 feet. Will I miss the 4 inches???????

    I have a board (similar) that my husband made, but all 3 panels are the same size. Each side folds in completely (if that makes sense). It makes for something smaller to carry to and from class but gave me more board writing space.

    Thanks for the great idea…you may want to share with your readers, however, we could only find shower board at our Lowe’s , no poster board. and the shower board is bumpy on one side so we will have to use the back. I hope it works, because it seems brilliant!
