It’s that time of year… Time to go back to school! These literacy and math stations are sure to keep your students engaged and having fun! The activities can be used with the whole class, as games, or as reading or math centers.
They were created with my new first grade students in mind. I’ll be blogging soon about how I incorporate literacy and math stations into my classroom soon at http://www.therazzledazzleclassroom.blogspot.com/.
Here’s what you’ll get…
8 Literacy Stations
-How Many Syllables? – Students must determine if a given word/picture has one, two, or three syllables.
-What’s the Vowel Sound? – Students must determine and sort words by vowel sounds. *Can also be played as a vowel sound matching game.
-What’s the Digraph – Students determine if a given picture includes the ch, th, sh, wh, or ph digraph. *Could also be used as a memory game to match pictures with the same digraph.
-ABC Order – Students put a set of cards in abc order and record their answers on their recording sheet.
-Consonant Blends– Students must determine if a word/picture includes a consonant blend. *Could also be played as a memory game. Students would need to match the words with blends and the words without blends.
-Noun Sort – Students must sort nouns into three groups (person, place, thing).
-Synonym Memory – Students must match synonyms. *Could be played as a memory game or just simply matching.
-Antonym Memory – Students must match antonyms. *Could be played as a memory game or just simply matching.
6 Math Stations
-True or False Equations – Students must sort simple addition equations and determine if they are true or false.
-What’s the Addend? – Students must solve equations and find the missing addend (3,5, or2).
-Base 10 Memory – Students must match a card with base 10 blocks to the correct number. Students can just simply match or play memory.
-Greater Than or Less Than 10 – Students must determine if the answer to the given equation is greater than or less than 10.
-Tally Memory – Students must match tally marks to the correct number. This activity can be played as a memory game or just matching.
-Number Grid Puzzles – Students begin on a number and follow a set of arrows to discover the end number. This is a great activity to develop number sense and adding and subtracting on the number grid..
**All stations and games include recording sheets or printables for a quick assessment.
**All stations are in color but print great in black/white or grayscale.
