Monday Made It: Write and Wipe Table Spots

I've been meaning to share this post with you for 3 weeks now. However, we all know how life gets in the way, so without further ado.
I originally saw these whiteboard spot 2 years ago when a fellow teacher at my school put them on her guided reading table. Shortly after I saw some other bloggers do the same. I thought it was just brilliant and had to copy. 

Silly part was that it took me 2 years to do it. It was partly because I didn't want to pay so much for the of, I'm going to call them, write and wipe sheets. However, this year I found them, and for a pretty darn good price. Just had to snatch them up.
I started by cleaning the table and laying out the sheets.
Next, I measured the distance from the edge and each other.
 I stuck one down, and moved to another.
 I was surprised at how easy they were to put down, and though I did not have to lift any off, it felt like they were a bit forgiving.
 Some were a little off, not a perfect line, but I don't mind too much. I added my table runner, so that I could protect the write and wipe sheets from some of my binders and books. However, I will remove this during my guided reading time.
 Here is a picture of the table with the fab new duct tape stools.
 As well as a picture of it in use.
Recently I saw Kristen, from Ladybug Teacher Files, added these sheets to the back of her clipboard. I love that idea, I may be making some of those in the future.
