Literacy Work Stations & FREE Syllable Sorting Activity

Here are the literacy work stations we have been doing lately:

SYLLABLE SORTING
FREE Syllable activities- perfect as a literacy center in Kindergarten!
Students are practicing their syllable skills...wearing 'clapping gloves'.

The gloves make the activity FUN, and keeps the clapping quiet :) 
They take turns drawing a card, clapping the word together as a group, then putting it on the correct syllable mat.

Because the cards don't have words for them to copy, students are choosing one picture per category & drawing it in the corresponding box.

LISTENING CENTER
Winter Literacy Work Stations for Kindergarten
We are currently doing The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats.
They listen to the story, then fill in a student response form:

WINTER WRITE THE ROOM
I 'hid' winter words around the classroom, numbered from 1-10.

 When they find a word, they print it beside the corresponding number.

UPDATE: I have created bundles of month-long literacy centers, 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}

That syllable counting station looks adorable. I love the glove idea! Is this an activity that you have available somewhere? I would love to use it in my clasroom.

:) Catherine, I thought the same thing...perhaps she's tired of the story at this point!
