It is so nice to be back to school and to KNOW that I won’t be out for the rest of the year for any other reason. I love doing conferences, but I love being in my classroom even more.
This is the sweet spot of the year… where you start to see things come together.
I was asked how I get my students to “write” at the writing station and not just draw. I guess I get them to write because that is the expectation. I provide lots of paper options and vocabulary support. Then I sing the praises of those who put forth their best effort.
As you may know, this is what my writing station looks like.
As you can see from the “I Can” cards, there are all type of paper options.
As I was “taking a lap” during our station time… I was thrilled with what I saw!
Here are a couple of books that my students created today.
and here is another.
You can find my Writing Work Station for March HERE.
Or Save BIG with the Writing Work Station-The Complete Set HERE.
Here are few other stations that caught my eye. I love to see the attention to detail. Some of my students are still working on identifying initial sounds. So I always try to have a station that will engage them and support them so they feel successful.
This is from my Math and Literacy Stations for March unit.
Other students are working on different skills.
The stamping station is always a huge HIT!
We also worked on writing (disguised as a fun craft.) Thank you Deanna Jump for the updated St. Patrick’s Day unit. My week is filled with these fun activities that reinforce writing.

I hope you had a fabulous Monday!
