Reading Station. One of my wonderful partners made this activity. Students will select a card and read the sight word. If it is read correctly, they place a counter onto a bowling pin. "Wow" cards score two pins. The first to cover his/her board wins. Once the game has been played several times students will complete the balloon sight word page.
Literacy Station. Students will use this Instant Learning Center from Lakeshore to practice beginning sounds.
This activity features self-correcting cards.
A page from Teacher's Helper will be completed upon completion of the activity. I like students to do a related worksheet at each station to further practice the featured skill. Additionally, these sheets help me to assess the understanding of the skill, and give parents a peek into what goes on during our Literacy Stations.
Writing Station. Students will practice writing sentences by copying prewritten sentences onto lines paper. They will use "Space Sticks" to help them to maintain proper spacing between words.
Math Literacy. Students will play a game I found in an old first grade Mailbox. This spinner game features identifying solid shapes and reading the words cone, cube, sphere, and cylinder.
Students will complete this page after playing the solid shapes game.
