To all our readers, we are so sorry that we haven’t published anything lately. It has been very busy here. But let me start back with a short video.
My class loves doing stations. Check out our slide show to see what we are doing. We use the framework of The Daily Five in our stations: Read to Self, Listen to Reading, Word Work, Writing, and Read with the Teacher.
We have an Early Literacy program on our school portal called ABRACADABRA. There are interactive stories to read, letter and sound activities, comprehension activities and writing activities. We can use this station for Word Work or Reading. We are lucky to have 5 macbooks loaned to us from Corcordia University in Montreal where this program was developed. We slowly introduced each station using anchor charts to help the children remember what to do. I am using leveled books from Reading A-Z, an online site where you can download texts. I am enjoying having the time to read with small groups.
