Do you teach Wonders Reading for First Grade? Then this product is for you!
A yearly schedule that compliments the 2016/2017 Wonders Workstation Cards! This schedule helps you stay organized and know when to use which cards. No longer will you spend your prep time looking through all of the cards wondering which cards match your weekly focuses or wondering which cards you've already used! This product has greatly improved my implementation of the Workstation cards and increased my independent structure rigor, and I know it will for you too!
This workstation card schedule is based on recommendations from the
McGraw-Hill recommends a Phonics/Word Study workstation card, a
Science/Social Studies workstation card, and at least one of the Reading
and Writing workstation cards per week.
How I use the cards:
*I select the card(s) the students use each day based off the workstation card schedule
*Students focus on 1-2 workstation card(s) a day during independent work time
*I explain directions & model sheet activities (worksheets I've created that match each workstation card-check them out in my TPT store!)
*We may “collaborate” as a class (generate a list/possible answers, turn-and-talk, share out) or students collaborate quietly with a peer during independent time
*Students complete the activity sheet during independent time while I teach small groups
*Students complete Daily 5 activities or Wonders iPads activities when finished
Sample of how I use the cards during the week:
Day 1: Science/Social Studies card (help build on weekly essential question)
Day 2: Reading/Writing Card
Day 3: Phonics Card
Day 4: Reading/Writing Card (we may do a challenging sheet together on the document camera)
Day 5: No Card
I hope you find the workstation card schedule as helpful as I do!
Thanks for checking it out!
