1. Math Stations! After talking to Katie King and seeing how she incorporated math stations into her day, I knew I had to give it a shot. And, I am so glad that I did! Here’s what I love about math stations:
-We work on concepts for longer than a week or unit of study. The stations reflect what we have already learned and what we need more practice on. This helps my students retain more information.
-They are pain-free! I put stations together about every 2 weeks. We do one rotation a day, so they last between 8-10 days.
-My students absolutely LOVE math station time. If we don’t have enough time for them, it’s pretty heartbreaking!
-I get to meet with small groups every.single.day now 🙂
2. Daily Five! I’ve honestly never been happier about my literacy block. My students are in the rhythm and pretty much rocking it! Of course, I have some kiddos that play around and goof off, but they are the minority.
3. Word Work during the Daily Five! For the next two weeks I have added in the literacy stations from my “Let’s Be Thankful” unit. My kiddos LOVE it when I change things up and add new activities!
4. And, of course, I absolutely 100% LOVE anything that is made of construction paper, ha! If I can figure out how to incorporate a craftivity while including rich content, you better bet that I’m going to!
