Starting stations

I’ve been rolling station ideas around in my head for a while. Trying to figure out the best way to do them in Moore’s library. So I think they’ve incubated enough, and we’ll hatch this idea on Tuesday.

3rd & 4th grade schedule

  • Months 1 & 2 – introduction to library skills stations at their usual working tables.
  • Month 3 – students go to the same stations around the library by tables.
  • Month 4 – students get to choose stations.

Batch 1

  • Did you know? cards
  • Library vocabulary 3-way match
  • Reference shuffle
  • What’s your number?
  • Library helpers 1

5th grade will follow the same procedure but they are working on science/research stations. I’ve had a harder time with this one.

  • Graphic organizers
  • Fact or opinion
  • Reference shuffle
  • Cite your source
  • Library helpers 1

I’ll introduce stations to grade 2 during second semester following the same routine. Hopefully we will be able to start them earlier next year and with less introduction in 3rd, 4th & 5th grades.
