Literacy Work Stations

Here are the literacy work stations that my class is working on for the next five-day rotation:

Letter Mazes
Students are working on letter mazes Ff through Jj from, which can be found here.

Sight Word Book
This round, the booklet is called A Fireman, featuring the new sight word a.
The book is from Hubbards Cupboard, and can be downloaded here. See here for the previous post that describes this activity in detail.

Letter Tiles~Making Colour Words
At this station, students practise building colour words, based on the characters from Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr.
The book Brown Bear also coincides with November's 5 Senses theme, with its focus on the sense of sight. 

Power Towers~Class Names
Inside the Power Tower tube are words printed on Dixie cups. Students stack the words they can read and see how high their tower can grow.
This idea was posted here, and is from

Class Name Word Searches
I went on the website and created word searches that had my students' names as the words to find. One side of the sheet has the boys' names and the other has the girls' names.

These dot-to-dot activity pages make each of the characters from  Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr.
They can be found here.

FYI: I have created bundles of month-long literacy centres, to make things easy for Kindergarten teachers!
The packs include literacy activities in these 5 areas of learning:
1)Writing 2)Listening to reading 3) Word work (sight words) 4) Phonics/alphabet 5) Phonemic awareness
The packs are laid out, week by week, for the entire month. They include 5 stations for students to rotate through per week, with all of the components you’ll need for each activity.
Assessment tools are included to help keep learning on track and to keep your students accountable.
Learning is spiraled throughout the month, to help students build on their prior learning. 
Check out the first pack in the series {here}
