Literacy Work Stations

This is my very first post! I've been in stalking research mode thusfar...I have so many favorite blogs that fill my inbox with happiness and inspiration. Please follow me if you'd like to hear more about my first grade world here in Wisconsin and get bunches of freebies. :-) Once I make it to 31 followers, I'm thinking I need to do a thirty-one giveaway! Kinda fun, hey? So...feel free to go ahead and share my blog with your besties and even your kinda-besties.

At any rate...let's talk about Literacy Work Stations. Just like many of you, while I am busy in guided reading groups the rest of the class is partnered (sometimes trio-ed...is that really a word?) up and busy at Literacy Work Stations (aka Centers, Language Labs, etc). In my world, the stations stay the same all year long, but the contents rotate out each month-ish.

The stations in my room are:
Smartboard
Pocket Chart
Listening Center
iPads (new this year!!!)
Word Work
Poetry
Research
Authors & Characters
Retelling
Visualize & Illustrate (new this year)

I've been having fun using digital images and Power Point lately to make some labels and such for my room.





Here are your freebie labels... I plan to print and tape each label onto the matching station's tub. I'll post some pics once I can get back into my classroom...which won't be until August 20th. We start back to work on August 26th, kids start the Tuesday after Labor Day.

Smiles!
