Literacy work stations differ from traditional learning centers because they focus on independent practice with reading, writing, and spelling. The activities in each work station are authentic and encourage responsibility and independence. They inspire children to explore and learn through self-discovery as well as master information derived from direct instruction, collaborative group sessions and peer or teacher modeling of information.
Share your Ideas
IT WORKS !!! Sometimes they are tried and true stations that always produce the products that you want...sometimes they are not planned, thrown together, out of the box ideas that just work. Whatever your station idea, share it with us. We want to make sure we work collaboratively and pass the ball to our team for the three point shot. The key to a successful station is engagement and independence.
