Day 1 after Work Station Re-vamp!

Before you look at any picture please excuse the poor quality of my camera phone pictures! Ugh. Forgot my camera at home... and let's say the floor has become my phones best friend. Oh to remember when I first got her and she took clear pictures. Wamp wamp. 

Anyways, I tried to snap some shots of my littles in works stations today! I decided to circled the room today to make sure the students were on task and understanding what to do at their work stations. 

Pocket Chart Station with Silly Sentences… can I just say my kids LOVA LOVE this activity. The girls were creating sentences, reading sentences aloud, and then recording the sentence. They were trying to find the perfect word to make the sentences funny. *AND most importantly they were reading words I did not expect them to know! Whew… happy teacher day.*
 Writing Station: Completing their Sloppy Copy (Pre-Write) which is their must do activity. This week our topic is: How to Make a Penguin dance via Ms. Thomas at First Grade Jungle! This idea is brilliant! It really holds my kids accountable for their writing. 

ABC/ Word Study or Word Work Station: Making words with scrabble tiles. 
The tiles are a clip art from Scrappin' Doodles. 

Library Station: with the new organized system {which I organized a few weeks ago}.

Listening Station: New books WILL be added tomorrow! 

 Work on Words: Type it
Look at that focus… my boys were SO into this! Typing away their sight words! This was definitely a hit! *They would also get really excited when they saw a spelling word or sight word from the previous week/ this week, so cute!*

All in all I am very pleased with how our work stations went today. I love to see that look of excitement in my students eyes when they are having fun learning!

I am going to a Mardi Gras Ball for the weekend, so I will be back next week with more updates! 
Hope you have a great weekend,

  2. Oh my gosh! Love this! I totally wish I could work in a school with you!!! I just know that we would swap ideas left and right! Anyway, I wanted to ask how you were able to find the colorful stickers to fit your keyboard. I have an old wireless keyboard that I no longer use with my new computer, and I would LOVE to put it to use, but I am so finicky about everything looking just right!

  3. I love you blog! I just found it and of course had to become a follower. I love the keyboard station and I also would like to know if those are stickers on there and where you found them. I think this would be so useful. Thanks for any info you can give.

  4. Hi girls,
    I used paint markers to color over the keys! Pretty simple. Then I decorated them with stickers I already around the jazz it up.
    Hope this helps!

  5. I love love love the keyboard idea! I will totally have to borrow that one! I'm still trying to figure out how to get my kiddos really involved in their workstations and how to hold them accountable during that time. I like your stations and ideas!

  6. What a cute idea!! What are all of the stickers and what do they mean?

  7. We would further be able to substantiate all those ideas as have been discussed with some effective guides to be tried by the professionals and other students. summarizing online
