What Should I Call This Post???

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.

  1. How about, "Color-Coded Coordination for Small Groups" ?? Thanks for the ideas! I always struggle to know how to organize my small group time yet have groups that are not presently working with me be heterogenous enough to function (i.e., have a "high" kiddo that can help others with work). my brain is always happier when I organize things by colors;)
