I saw on Pinterest where someone used their SmartBoard for their Station Rotations. Once again... I was thinking to myself, "Seriously, why did I never think of that?" I am so glad that teachers share their ideas on-line! So, I made my own flow chart for my math stations. I have it arranged with my paired partners, so they can remember to work together. While I was making my chart, which literally took about 15 minutes, I realized that I wouldn't be able to use my timer anymore. I use it every day so the students will know when to change stations. Then, the idea came to me...I can just copy and paste it to my station board!
We used this today instead of the super cute Stations Chart I spent hours making....and it was GREAT! The students loved it, and it was easily read and interpreted by all of my students. My new motto is that it doesn't matter how long I spend making something. If I find something that works better- then I should just use it! (I am still using my old chart for my Reading Stations.)
