KeeCorp, Inc. firstname.lastname@example.org
I saw a display of KeeCorp's Trace Erase Boards - the "21st Century Slate Board" - at the 2002 Arizona Homeschool Convention and was instantly impressed. It's such an ingenious idea! The plastic write-on wipe-off boards are great for practicing penmanship and basic skills drills such as math worksheets. I especially like the way they save paper. I purchased one for my 7-year-old son and he uses it regularly.
