The Elizabeth Richards Big Book Teaching Centre is a whiteboard easel, an easel for Big Books and a classroom teaching easel in one!

Our Big Book Teaching Centre is a multi-purpose, versatile unit that will easily transition from small group activities, sharing Big Book stories, to whole-class lessons. Easily manoeuvred around the classroom or school library on heavy duty casters (two lockable casters), this teaching easel is practical, safe, and functional. Made from structural MDF with an attractive White Oak wood laminate, this teaching easel will fit in to any flexible learning classroom.

The premium quality porcelain magnetic whiteboard can be used for modelling writing conventions, or classroom activities. Easily wiped clean with our Magnetic Whiteboard Cloth  or Whiteboard Erasers, the 80cm x 90cm magnetic whiteboard has a lifetime surface warranty.

On the front of the Elizabeth Richards Big Book Teaching Centre there is a 10cm wide shelf perfect for storing Big Books, picture books and other resources. On the front there are two large drawers (one lockable) ideal for storing Whiteboard Markers and Whiteboard Easers, magnetic resources and other essential classroom resources close by. The lockable drawer on this teaching easel is perfect for personal belongings or tech gear that needs safe storage.

The back of the Elizabeth Richards Big Book Teaching Centre is just as versatile as the front! It includes a storage space large enough for an Elizabeth Richards Book Tub, keeping levelled readers or picture books at hand. There is also a fixed hanging rail perfect for our Elizabeth Richard Book Bags – keeping multiple copies of books and other resources close by, helping you stay organised and ready to teach!

    Perfect moveable whiteboard!

    I use this at school every day! It is the perfect whiteboard to have next to my smart screen. It is a great height. Easy enough to move but big enough that it is durable. The storage drawers are SO HELPFUL! I also keep spare workbooks and larger resources in the hole underneath the drawers

    Have seen better quality

    This board arrived unopened, however brackets missing and runners not predrilled. It was a nightmare to assemble. Instructions not included in the box, had to go online. Once assembled it is pretty poor in quality. Everything about it is clunky. Drawers are tight and awkward. I am afraid to move it around the classroom. I have also seen better quality whiteboard surfaces. For the money, I would say poor value! Consider other brands.

    Difficult to assemble

    Instructions included are very brief and difficult to follow. Many steps are 'assumed' and hardware is not labelled to assist with identification. All hardware is in a big bag together, rather than separated. Many, many improvements could be made on these instructions!! 'easy self assembly' if you are VERY familiar with flat pack furniture !
