Work Stations, as described by Debbie Diller, are a great way to provide independent practice for your students at their individual levels. While many of us use centers, learning stations, and other versions of the same concept, Diller's work stations are simple and easy to maintain. My biggest hurdle in getting started with literacy work stations is setting up the schedule. After several tries, I finally came up with what I believe to be a thorough and effective schedule. While this two-week rotation schedule is set up for 20 students, 12 work stations, and 5 small groups, you can certainly rearrange to suit the needs of your classroom.
