Literacy Work Stations!

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

My little "surgeons", wearing (dust) masks, gloves, and using tweezers, work on their operating tray to piece together the broken bones...STAT!
They print the 'fixed' words on this page.
These broken bones have my students' names on them, but the activity would also work to piece together words  (onsets & rimes).

All 'surgery tools' shown can be found at your local Dollarama.
 You can find downloads of the bones & clipboard here, from Regan at Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits.

Write The Room
Snowflakes with sight words are "hidden" around the classroom.
Students take a write-the-room sheet and try to find the snowflake words & copy them onto their charts.
My write-the-room pages are available here and here. They were my first *freebies*!
Listening Centre
We are currently doing a book study on The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats.
Students listen to the story, then work on my mini activity pack.
It's a freebie! Check it out {here}

Alphabet Centre
This activity centre includes practice with beginning sounds:
ending sounds
vowel sounds
and missing letters.
Click {here} to check it out!

Sight Word Book
Our sight word booklet is called At School, featuring the new sight words we & will.

The book is from Hubbard's Cupboard, and can be found here.
See here for how this activity is presented...any why there is a tiara involved :)

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}
