The yellow station cards are rotated down one pocket each day. When "Mrs. Phillips" gets back to the top, it's time for a new round of stations. (This picture is from last year. I am so happy that I took the time to cover my focus wall entirely in fabric - it looks so much nicer!)
Writing Station. Students copy the sentence frames onto their papers to write a rebus story. This masterpiece is my sample - so far no one has copied it! :-) Here is the worksheet for the story.
Word Work Station. Students sort picture cards by initial sounds.
The little boat pictures came from this book.
Mrs. S.'s Station. Students sort picture/word cards into categories. They practice using picture clues to help figure out the words with this page I found at www.tlsbooks.com
Listening Station. I made copies of this page for each of our book/CD combos. The kids complete one after listening to the story. As the year progresses, I ask them to write some words or sentences in addition to drawing a picture.
I got the form shown above from this book.
