Individual work boards

    When our EYFS unit was set up some years ago, it was clearly the latest thing for every child to have his or her own work board where they were encouraged to put work they were proud of. Our entire walls are plastered with them to the extent that 50% of the children can't reach them themselves. The idea was that children would share them with parents, but this does not happen. My classroom is due to be decorated next summer and I'm thinking maybe I'll get rid of the individual boards and just ask for a big board in the cloakroom area where the children can put work they are proud of for all to see. Does anyone else have these individual boards? Did you ever have them? I'm thinking maybe they were the whim of an EYAT who now seems very keen for all to have "beaches" instead of sandpits.

    Oh dear. I am cynical this morning. Sorry.
     
  3. I have tried them for two successive years now. The first year, only a handful of children ever asked to put up what they had been doing ~ they all had their own space. This year I have just a general board, but I forget, let alone the children, to use it properly! Perhaps they aren't such a good idea?!

    I find that children want to take stuff straight home if they are really pleased with it!
