Four activities are included in this station bundle. All activities include a key and are ready to be printed out and placed in stations. In my middle school classroom, stations are always set up in a file box or a hanging file organizer. Students are required to complete the stations by a certain date. Students access the stations when they have completed an activity/reading in class. Stations allow for easy differentiation. I assign different stations to different students based on the students' needs.
All station activities can stand alone. You do not need to use the activities in a station format. The writing prompt cards would make good journal prompts or bell ringer writings. The poetry analysis station can be used in a poetry unit. The crossword can be used in a reference unit or practice using a thesaurus. The Figurative Language activity is good practice for identifying the different types of figurative language.
Station #1- Poetry Analysis/Opinion writing with textual evidence as support (sonnet, lyric poetry)
Station #2-Writing Prompt Task Cards
Station #3- Synonym/Thesaurus practice Crossword Puzzle
Station #4- Valentine's Day Figurative Language Practice (onomatopoeia, idiom, personification, metaphor, simile, alliteration, oxymoron)
I will be adding more of my station activities to my TPT page in the future. If you would like to be notified when new products are posted or when my store goes on sale, please choose to follow me above. Thank you!
