Hi ya’ll! A Write And Wipe Learning Binder is a fantastic tool for kids of all ages! It allows your kiddos to practice over and over again without wasting paper and ink.
When my twins came home from kindergarten one day with a write and wipe learning binder I was blown away with how genius that was! They were able to focus on their problem areas as many times as needed. Yet, it didn’t leave a pile of wasted paper or bits of eraser all over the table.
I was in love with this creative learning technique so I decided to create my own and share it with you!
What you need to create a write and wipe learning binder:
- A sturdy binder.
- Clear sheet paper protectors. (DO NOT skimp on these! I made that mistake and got the cheap “Economy” style. They were really thin which made them easy to rip when wrote on. Also, they did not erase well.)
- FREE Printable Template or Plain Paper. (Sign up for your FREE printable below)
- Dry Erase Marker.
- Block Eraser. (For dry erase boards.)
- Sharpie. (Optional.)
How to make a write and wipe learning binder
Your first step will be to either print my FREE PRINTABLE PACKET or create your own.
How to make your own template
In order to create your own template all you need is a piece of paper and a Sharpie. Then write the age appropriate letters, numbers, shapes, words, or math problems on a piece of paper.
If you need to conserve paper you can write the entire alphabet on one piece of paper. However, I recommend dividing them up onto multiple pages. This helps to keep your child from feeling overwhelmed. Because every time they finish a page it gives them the sense of accomplishment which gives them a confidence boost to keep learning!
Putting the Learning binder together
The last step is to simply slide the paper into the Sheet Protector. Then place the protector into a binder.
Once you have all of your sheets in the binder have your child trace the letters and numbers. Then use the block eraser to clear the page so they can start again.
And there you have it! The perfect way to practice writing without wasting paper!
Feel free to get creative and add whatever your child needs to practice repeatedly. You could also use this as way to learn how to draw. Simply print your favorite template and slide it into the sleeve! You could also create your own templates by drawing animals and writing it’s name underneath for your child to trace. (Draw their favorite animals to catch their attention.) Remember, combining learning with playtime will keep your kiddos interested and wanting to learn more!
P.S.- If you are using my template, you will notice there’s extra space under the alphabet. Use those lines to add your child’s name!
