They are a lot of fun to use. You can make them colorful, eye-pleasing and educational! I mean really, what's not to love about them?!! ;o)
It gives me a chance to use my creativity in displaying the concepts that will be emphasized for the week and seeing the information displayed also helps to keep me on track.
Chalkboards and bulletin boards may not be everyone's cup of tea. They aren't a necessity. You can certainly live without them. You can display schedules, chores and school work on the refrigerator. These are just some of the ways that I have utilized them in our home.
