Uses of the Screenboard
The screenboard is quite easy to use. That is the beauty of it. All that is needed is to slip a piece of paper under the screen and trace the letter while practicing the sounds of the letters. The screenboard was designed to accommodate 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper folded in half. You can create your own cards as needed or order ready-made cards.
A wooden stylus is included, but it is also possible to have your students trace over the letter using their finger. The stylus will simulate the use of a pencil if that is desired.
Phonic practice was the original use but more uses have been discovered. These uses could include shape practice and spelling word practice. Handwriting and math facts practice are a possibility as well. It has been suggested making cards with the states and continents shapes. Some cards can be ordered along with the screenboards.
Feel free to let me know if you think of other applications for the screenboard.
