Literacy Work Stations / Centers FREEBIE

If you are looking to implement literacy work stations / centers in your classroom this year, look no further!  Below, you will find everything you need to start.   

This will be my second year using these work stations. Originally, I got the idea from Amanda Madden's Second Grade Website.  I tweaked them quite a bit and even added some of my own.  They are a wonderful learning tool for my students, and they really enjoy this time of the day.  At my school, we use the Harcourt Storytown reading series.  I created these work stations as a way to teach the skills in the series in a fun, engaging way.




I try to use the work stations everyday.  The students work on a station for 15 minutes.  Then usually, we switch and do another station for another 15 minutes.  Below is the work station chart and schedule that I use {Click to download for free in Google Docs}.  I assign students to a station based on where they sit...for example, since my students sit in groups, they share a station with the person sitting next to or across from them {students 1 & 2 on the schedule, etc.}.  I assign them ahead of time.

 


 When I tell them it's time for stations, they get their first assigned basket and bring it back to their seat.  Inside the basket are the directions and all the materials needed to complete that activity.  Here are the basket labels and instruction cards.

Click to download in Google docs.














Now, obviously {as you can see from the instruction cards}, you're going to need some basic materials beforehand...like baskets.  I bought these Sterilite ones from Target.  Any baskets will do though.  The following are the items you will need for each station:

Adventures in Vocabulary  
  • Task Cards {I found these on Karen McDavid's Website...these are great!  I start out with a few easy ones and add more as we learn the skills.}
  • Copy of vocabulary words {Mine are located in a pocket chart on my focus wall each week}
  • Handwriting Paper
  • Slates & dry erase markers

Handwriting Heroes
  • Handwriting paper {1st Semester, they print the letters & 2nd semester, they get to write the letters in cursive after they are each introduced}
  • Vocab Words & Spelling Words {Mine are located on my focus wall}
  • Slates & dry erase markers

Jump Into Writing 
  • Monthly Task Cards {I found these on Ms. Winston's Website...wonderful! I change them out every month.}
  • Sentence cards {Paper with scrambled sentences, laminated.  Students use a dry erase marker to unscramble and write the sentences correctly.  You will have to create these.}
  • Handwriting Paper
Listening Center
  • At least 2 portable CD players
  • Cd's with the weekly stories on them.  Enough CD's for the number of players you have.  {I put each theme's stories on a new CD. It makes it easier for the kids to find the correct track.}
  • Reading Response Cards {From Ms. Winston's site again.  :) I use sets 1, 2, 3, & 4.}
Nonfiction News

Poetry Pals
  • Monthly Poems {From Ms. Winston's Website, yet again}
  • Poetry books
Post-Office Center
  • Individual index cards with student addresses printed on each
  • Handwriting paper
  • Slates & dry erase markers
Reading Comprehension
  • Picture Books {I let the kids choose a just right book from my leveled class library.
  • Book Report Task Cards {I feel horrible that I don't remember where I got these.  I know it was at a very dedicated teacher's website.  If anyone knows where I got these, please let me know! Also, I chose a handful of cards that my students can understand.  You can add/change cards as the year goes on.}
  • Computer to take AR Test
Reference Round-Up

Word Detective  
  • Word Detective Task Cards {From Karen McDavid's site again}
  •  Magnifying Glasses {Cheap plastic ones from the dollar store will do}
  • Handwriting paper
  • Slates & dry erase markers
  • Word work cards {I have write on/wipe off cards in my classroom that work on word families, etc.  You will have to make these or find on your own.} 
  •  
     
    Voila!!  It's a lot of printing, cutting, & laminating, but that's it!  It is totally worth it to have organized literacy work stations in your classroom.  Enjoy!!!

Wow these are fantastic. I do daily 5 but i can still use some of these. I did Debbie Diller for a year and loved it and then my district adopted daily 5 so we had to switch butI can tell you put a lot of work into these.
thanks so much
Heidi

Mrs. Clapp said...

Thanks Heidi! I wish my school would adopt Daily 5. Yes, a lot of initial work went into creating these, but now that I have them, I don't have to put much effort into keeping up with them at all. Thanks for following my blog! ;)

I just found your site via the linky party and I'm totally hooked! I can't retrieve the documents from google it says I don't have permission:( Is there any way you can email them to me? mysecondgradejournal@gmail.com

I would love for you to check out my blog @ mysecondgradejournal.blogspot.com

Thanks

Mrs. Clapp said...

Mrs. Shepherd,
Sorry about that! You should have permission now. I accidentally left it on private setting. If you're still having trouble, I will email them to you. Enjoy!!

Awesome ideas already, can't wait to see more!! I shared your literacy center post with the head of our literacy department at my school I liked it so much!

Miss J said...

Just found your site through Pinterest!! Thanks for sharing!! Just a quick question how do you embed a clickable document like you did? Also, how did you create links to other documents (i.e. your Task Cards)? Thanks!! What a great site!!

Miss J @ smilescrayonsandendlesstories.blogspot.com

Allison said...

This is FANTASTIC!!! Thank you so much for sharing all of this!!

Tasha Clapp said...

Miss J,
I honestly don't know how I embedded a clickable document. I didn't even know I did it. Haha. But to create links to other documents, you highlight the text that you want linked and press the link button (a blogger tool you see at the top when creating your post). Then copy and paste the link of that site in the link box. Hope this helps!

I am interested in knowing if your students use all of the center activities each day? then do they start over again each day? So the will actually see each of these centers 5 times a day. Thanks so much. This is my first year teaching 2nd grade.

Hi
Love your literacy centers and the math games - will def use them this coming year - need to add more centers because in NYC we have up to 29 students.
What font did you use on the basket signs - I like to keep everything uniform.

Hi! I just love this information. Thank you for sharing. Could you please share this information in a format in which I can edit? I need to translate everything into Spanish. I love the labels and directions sheets with the clip art and colorful fonts. I understand you can't send many of the worksheets, I'll just recreate those into Spanish. I appreciate the help! My e-mail is rrosas@lcer.org. Gracias! Thanks!

I have a 2nd and 3rd grade LD class for the first time! For the past 5 years I have been teaching math in middle school for special education students. I am loving your site and ideas. They are fantastic and allow me to customize each center for each students needs. I have many different levels sitting in front of me and I simply can't use the standard curriculum for them. I have the same question as the Laura from above, Ms. Winston's website is no longer available and I would love it if anyone could email me the cards/tasks cards that she provided. Thanks again.
