I know, I know. I am surprised too. Like I said, when I started feeling like I was not drowning in school work I would be back. Hopefully this will continue.
I posted yesterday about creating activities for my littles to do at the overhead projector during work stations. It's DONE! Whoo.
I knew I wanted to incorporate the overhead into our work stations since it is simple technology to work with and my kids love it.
At first I had my students making words with the Overhead Pens. After my OCD could not handle the mess of the pens all over, I introduce using magnet letters to make the words. My students would make their weekly words, words from the word wall, or words from around the room. Then, I found overhead 1 inch tiles. I had the idea to write letters on the tiles for the students to use. And that is where the idea of having overhead transpariences with pictures which the students would make the word.
I snapped pictures today of one of my cuties working at the work station. She was doing an amazing job!
She is using the tiles to build words on the transparency strips based on the pictures.
These are the 1 inch tiles I used.
I created a Short Vowel packet first. I will make others as time goes on!

Hope this helps you during your work stations!
