Overhead Station

I had a few teachers from another school district visit and observe my class today.  They were interested in my overhead station, so I thought I would share how we are using it right now.
I put our sight/popcorn words on a word ring.  Then add magnetic letters to a container.  This is an empty Crystal Light container (perfect size).

Partners take turns shining the words on the white board, then tracing the letters.  They LOVE this!

Finally they write the words. "My mom went to the grocery store."  Nicely done Miss D!

How are you using your overhead projector?


  1. LOVEEE the overhead response sheet. I've been doing an overhead station for 2 years now and have never had the students record anything...simply read the words to their partners. This will be most helpful and make the station last a bit longer! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Love the idea!! I have an overhead station also! The kids love it. I also save my extra laminate film and cut it into small pieces to save it for the kids to write their sight words, friends names, numbers, alphabet, shapes....etc
