This 127 paged unit contains 16 different activities to choose from for Word Work/Literacy Stations. It is an enormous set. Please make sure to check out the preview. I included all the student activity cards so you can get an idea of the activities included.

These stations have a format similar to my Back To School Word Work Stations but with continually more complex skills added. They will allow your students to continue to use familiar routines and procedures of your classroom and stations. They are differentiated and aligned.
The following activities are included:
Station 1:All Your Turkeys In A Row: This letter order activity is a fun activity using links for letter order practice.
Station 2: Your Order of Turkey Is Ready: Student pull letter cards and record the letters that come after (or before and after for those students who need a challenge).
Station 3: Turkey For Dinner: Letter recognition card game. Students hide a dining turkey behind letters and their friends take turns searching for the turkey by identifying letters and sounds.
Station 4: Let’s Eat: : A letter recognition card game with fun ‘surprise’ cards to make play fun.
Station 5: Turkey Teams: Letter Matching game
Station 6: Eat Drink and Party Like a Pilgrim: Sight word recognition activity where students hide roast turkey behind sight words. They take turns guessing where the turkey is located by identifying words. There are over 100 words from which to choose or an editable file for making your own word cards.
Station 7: Yummy: A fun fast paced sight word game with some special cards to make play exciting.
