Better than a white board...

I was recently asked by Shoplet.com Office Supplies to review the Best-rite Visionary Magnetic Glass Board.  While I love to review anything that can be used in my classroom, I was a little hesitant to review the board because I already have large white board and an easel white board in my classroom.  I went to Shoplet.com, read the product discription for the glass board, and decided to give it a try.  I am so glad I did.

The Best-rite Visionary Magnetic Glass Board isn't like a traditional white board!  It reminds me of a large glass cutting board.  The board can be mounted on the wall with the included hardware.  I didn't mount it in my classroom because I will probably be changing buildings next year, and the custodian isn't a fan of hanging things that are not permanent.  I was thinking of placing it on an easel until next year, but I was concerned that it might get knocked over.  It is a heavy duty glass, but I don't want to take any chances.
The board measures 24 X 18 and is an 1/8 of an inch thick.  I love the fact that the board is magnetic and dry erase.  You can use dry erase, window markers, and chalk markers on the board.  Everything erases so easily.  I just used a dry paper towel to erase my board.
The best part about the board is how vivid the colors are on it!  Light shines through the glass and really makes it pop.
I haven't decided if I will use the board as a message board outside my classroom door or to write my quote of the week on it from my Quote Jar.

There are so many different uses for the board.  It is definitely one product that I would highly recommend.

  1. I like that you reviewed something that isn't very popular or widely used in the elementary school classroom. I think this magnetic glass board is great and could be used for many different things in the classroom. I might use it to highlight specials days like birthdays or a countdown to holidays. This could also be a great resource for lesson plans to switch up using the traditional whiteboard.
