I don't know about you, but I totally love reading and seeing how others have set up their classrooms! (sometimes I even snag a great idea here or there)
In our writing workstation I've found over the years that the more choices they have the more appealing the workstation is. As you can see my word wall is located in close proximity and the words are magnetic so that the students can manipulate it! My students also have access to dry erase boards, sight word pockets, sight word sentences, and their words of the week that I use from my sight word mastery set on TpT.
Growing up I remember owning many different tools that made reading fun and when I started teaching I wanted to do just that for my students. I do have to say that this may be one of my favorites. Our class has 6 tag readers to use at their seats.
When the students take a case to their seats they open it up to find a variety of books at different levels. The students love using the tag readers to help them read, to ask them questions, and to build their comprehension skills.
My students have file folder games sorted by subject area and level. Students are invited to take a tray to their seat when they have completed their work or have a spare moment.
Each tray has one single player file folder game. Using the trays not only organizes the file folders in an easy stackable way, but it has increased their longevity.
Last but not least, I'd like to introduce you to my all time favorite workstation! Signing Time! My students absolutely adore this station and have learned so much from it. I apologize for the ugly cart.... Any suggestions on cutie-fying it??
Well that's about it for now! Once again, thanks for reading! Until next time....
