Any suggestions for a name for this post?
Read on and let me know what you think I should call this post by leaving your suggestion in the comments. :)
Small Group Learning Stations:
Each child get their own color coordinated learning station when they come to meet with me at the small group horseshoe table for homogeneous group instruction. I have 5 colored learning stations: Red, Orange, Green, Blue, & Purple.
|Everything you need for today's small-group lesson.|
The child from the Red Table gets to sit here and use the red cubes,
the red bingo marker, and the red dry-erase pen.
Each station has a laminated placemat with lined dry-erase contact paper on it, a dry-erase pen, a bingo ink marker, a cup to hold tools, and a set of Unifix cubes. The color of each item matches the placemat and the color of the table that child came from.
|The purple learning station.|
|The Orange learning station.|
|The Green learning station.|
The table groups (Red, Orange, Green, Blue, & Purple) are heterogeneous, so when I call up all of my high kids, I call one from each of the colored tables and they sit at their table color learning station.
|I also keep their color-coordinated supplies in these cloth bags.|
I marked one of the crescents on the front of each bag with its color.
And they get a color-coordinated cup to store small items like their glue stick and eraser.
|I attached a pom-pom to the tiny dry-erase pen |
with a hot glue gun to create an attached eraser.
That's it for today, folks.
See you all tomorrow.
