Action shots of literacy workstations

Workstations is a very important part of our day in kindergarten, as it's a great time for kids to independently review and practice concepts we've learned throughout the week. In pairs of two, they rotate between various literacy stations, while I meet with small groups for Guided Reading. Guided reading is small group reading instruction. Students read books at their instructional level (not too hard, not too easy) and work on a certain skill that will help them move up to the next reading level. For example, they might work on strategies for figuring out an unknown word such as skipping the word and coming back to it. In my class, guided reading groups are in pairs.

So while I meet with guided reading groups, here's some action shots of what the other students are doing! For more details on what each workstations entails, click here.
