Students working together or independently is extremely important to their development. As a first grade teacher I wanted a new way to implement workstations in my classroom. I wanted to focus on students working with partners or by themselves. I also wanted the activites to challenge the students. The activities I focused on were rhyming, compound words, synonyms, antonyms, and sentence structure. I have included all materials necessary to complete each workstation successfully as well as directions. Once you use these activities you will be able to create some of your own activities as well. These activities are great as a means to pair higher level students with lower level students and teach young students to work together and independently without always coming to you for help. These activities should typically take 20-30 minutes.
