Literacy Stations for the week of 3/12/12

Here's what we will be working on this week:

Listening Station.  Sure, it's a Thanksgiving book... but the kids love it!  (Who said you can't read books out of season anyway?)

Writing Station.  This week our Kinders will be will be working on words to use in their writing.  The main activity is this cute clothesline.  (This is from the book two pictures down.)  After assembling their clotheslines, they will write a sentence telling what day of the week it is.  At the end of the week we will have enough days of the week clotheslines to include in our calendar work!

Use clothespins to help organize your materials.  They are so much more kid-friendly than paper clips!

A great resource for easy to make activities.

Writing Station early finishers activity.  One of my partners had this,
so I'm not sure where it came from.

Reading Station.  This week the kiddos will work on vowel sounds.  We have covered all of the vowel sounds in our Reading series, so they will make this cute truck book from the book below.

Math Literacy Station.  I made these little abacuses to help students to practice skip counting by twos.  They are super easy to make:  String twenty pony beads onto a pipe cleaner, slide the ends into 1/2 cuts on the ends of the cardboard base.  Fold and secure with tape.

See the bottom of this post for a Freebie to go with this station!

Collections of assorted items ready to be counted by twos!

I found these plates on clearance at Walmart (50 cents for a package of 4!).  They make great trays to help keep small items corralled.  I have also used paper plates to help students keep their manipulatives in one place while working.

Literacy Station.  Students will work on these Phonemic Awareness file folder activites from Lakeshore, and then do the worksheet pictured below.
