Last year my students loved the overhead station. However, by mid year, I struggled to keep it fresh. I rolled the projector into my closet and it stayed there. Every time I would open the closet door, my kids would sigh and say, "Remember the overhead station?..." with sad puppy dog eyes. I kept meaning to kick it up a notch and reintroduce it, but I never got around to it.
Summer is a wonderful time to scratch things off your "to do" list, don't ya think?
I have heard from some teachers that they are struggling with paper restrictions. The overhead station is a great way to keep your kids actively learning with little or no paper.
If you don't have an overhead (search janitor's closets) you can use your SMARTboard or Promethean Board. Another option is to print the learning material, laminate them, and use an Expo Marker.
In any event...
