If you have been following my blog for any length of time, you’ll know how much I have had an aversion to marker boards since BabyZ has been board.  In fact, I have been anti-chalk board and anti-marker board for a LONG time now.  I have been trying to get away from the rigid “school” approach and into more relaxed modes of learning.

But guess what?  NyGirl brought it back out for me to try again…(she is learning odd/even numbers).

I must admit, the marker board was a fun tool for our school today.

Notice I said “tool”.

Mmy 2 1/2 year old has FINALLY graduated.  She can now sit through a lesson without destroying our books and papers…and not only that, she is joining in on the marker board fun.

I did have an issue with the marker fumes, though.

Anyone know of a non-toxic, odor-free set of markers we can use for school?
