Who has tons of time to prep centers and stations? Not me! I like it easy, simple, and fast! If you're looking to start stations, or looking for new ideas to make your life easier, look no further. Whether you love Debbie Diller's Literacy Work Stations or you're an avid follower of The Daily Five, this pack is chock full of everything you need to get stations up and running in your classroom. While this pack is best suited for 1st and 2nd grades, most things can be adapted to upper grades as well. I've been doing work stations for the past 9 years and provide trainings and in-services for others looking to get started.
I've included everything you need to implement 16 different stations in your room (that takes care of 32 kids!):
Read to Self, Listen to Reading, Read to Someone, Big Books, ABC Order, Spelling, Writing, Word Wall, Read the Room, Drama, SmartBoard, Pocket Chart, Poetry, Creation Station, Technology, and Science & Social Studies
Here's what's included:
1) Stations cards to let kids know which stations they're assigned to each day
2) My tips and ideas for what to do at each station. I've ensured every station is easy to maintain and doesn't require much or any time to prep each week.
3) An "I Can" poster (for Debbie Diller followers) and a student/teacher T-chart (for Daily 5 people) for each station.
4) Any worksheets you might need to implement the station. They're simple and generic so you can adapt them to fit your needs.
This pack has over 100 pages of material ready to help you make stations the easiest and most engaging part of your day! Check out the preview for peek at what's inside.
