Literacy Stations

Each day after our silent reading the students participate in our Literacy Stations. Each station is a reading station. The students work in groups of 3-4 depending on how many students are in the class. Although the children are actually reading, or practicing reading skills, they feel like they are playing because the reading activities are fun. What a better way for children to learn that they can love reading. Over the last few weeks we have been learning our new stations and practicing them daily. Here are a few stations that we have already begun: Partner Reading, Mrs. KK's favorites (she is our Media Specialist), Science books, Genre Library, Math Books, Reader's Response, Big Books, and Star Books. Our favorite is character reading - especially with the The Three Billy Goats Gruff puppets.

This week we will begin our Read the Room and Book of the Month station as well.
