(If anyone knows the source of this adorable autumn image,
please let me know so I can give credit where it's due!)
Popping the pile of autumn leaves into a Word document, I added a text box and typed in our second quarter sight words. I like to save documents like this as PDFs so they don't get altered, but I also keep a copy in Word, and take a screen shot when necessary. Using the new image as the wallpaper on our SMART Board ~and~ on our desktop computers gives my students multiple opportunities in small and large groups as well as individually to quickly review and practice whatever is displayed.
I too, can quickly reference a targeted skill without having to search, click, open, and wait. I change the desktop/SMART Board wallpapers by month, but can also have a different image on each of our five desktop computers if I need to differentiate during centers.
How else can teachers and students use the valuable real estate space found on interactive white boards and desktop computers? Comment below and share your ideas!
