One nice thing about homeschooling is the ability to adjust to the child. I have three kids that scream, kick, and will kill not to actually do any writing if possible. One day I gave each of them an 8x11 inch dry erase board and let them do their lessons on the board. World of difference! They loved writing on the dry erase board. We got in the habit of using the dry erase board for spelling and vocabulary. Sometimes for math lessons and for handwriting practice. They are a hit and something we will continue to use. Utah Idaho School Supply has dry erase paddles on sale. I bought some and intend to use them for review games and the likes. At about $2.50 a pop you can't go wrong with the paddles.
Another way to bring the concept of dry erase to workbooks and the likes are to use some thick sheet protectors (if you didn't stumble across the dry erase pockets Target had a few months ago in the $1 ssection). Slip the worksheet in the protector and now the worksheet is fun because you can use dry erase markers.
Seriously this has been one of the best finds and purchases I have ever made. If your not using dry erase boards in your homeschool I highly suggest you run and buy some.
