One of my favorite things in our homeschool classroom (which used to be a deck!) is the white board on the wall. It’s usually crammed full of spelling words, math problems, to do lists, and on and on. The best part is that it cost about $12! It’s actually a shower board from Home Depot. My husband screwed it into the studs in the wall. I added the decorative border and voila! We use regular dry erase markers and usually use a wet wipe to clean.
