Article 4   Inexpensive Teaching Materials

Do you sometimes use workbooks meant to be consumed, but because they are loaned to you or the budget doesn't stretch far enough to replace them, you find yourself in the position of not being able to let the child write in the book?

Plastic overlays with crayons is one way to solve the problem. Or you might want to consider again the versatile unprinted newsprint. Ask the student to number on his newsprint in the same arrangement that the workbook page is numbered and write his answers there. This gives him valuable training in organization. Many of the children we see are weak in this area.

So don't overlook the simple and the inexpensive. Some of the best teaching aids are the ones you devise. And when a child can take a teaching aid home with him, it will further reinforce what he learned in school.
