I created 8 station cards to encourage higher-level thinking and creativity. These are not write-to-learn stations but more of quick writes.
These stations last me all year because the students are adding to the stations and creating something new every time.
These station cards can be used for mini-lessons, small group lessons, individual work, or partner work.
Here is a list of what is included...
Creating Sentences - The students will use nouns, verbs, and adjectives to organize a simple sentence. Included are editable cards, labels for your cups, and blank cards for your high-level students to create their own.
Affirmation Station - The student will learn how to build community by affirming their peers. All you need for this station is scrap paper and colorful pens. I included an editable list where you can type in student names so they can write to their peers.
Creative Writing - Using Playdoh and notecards, your students will create something out of the Playdoh and then write about their creation. Super fun! I included printable writing paper.
Descriptive Writing - The student will view a photo (that you will provide) and use the descriptive questions that I created to describe the photo while analyzing it. I also included an editable page where you can go back and add more questions along with lined paper.
Stamp Writing - Using stamps or stickers, the students will use the Draw and Write paper that I have included to create a scene and then write about it.
One-Pager - The students will create a One-Pager using the checklist I provided (which can be taken for a grade). The student will research a person, place, thing, or animal using a book to find out more information. I included an example of this in the preview in case you have not seen a One-Pager. The kids love making them!
I also made an editable checklist for your students to create their own criteria.
Last year I took some blue cups and glued fabric on the top of them. I cut the fabric large enough for the students to put their hand in them. I place an assortment of objects in each cup. The students had to put their hands in the cup and write out descriptions of what they could feel. After they finished writing, they were able to look inside the cup to see if their prediction came true. This year I will have them create a story using all objects in one cup.
Class Journal - Create a journal for your class using the cover page I created and the draw and write paper. All you need it to make a spiral-bound book and you have a place for students to add to a story that you created or use the writing prompts I created to let the students journal.
The size of the cards are 8.75" by 11.25" because of the way our copier copies. I wanted to make sure they fit the entire paper. They printed perfectly for me.
