I FINALLY got this bad boy finished! I am beyond excited & so are my students. We.are.obsessed! This writing station has been a work in progress....for a year! I started it at the end of last year to spice up our writing center. I knew I wanted some kind of display but I didn't know how my space was going to work out in my new classroom so I waited. Since I didn't know what my space situation was, I used binders for my organization.
This is more of a grab & go option. Sometimes they would take the binders to their desk or just sit on the floor with a clipboard. I used a poly folder inside of the binder that contained copies of the writing station paper. If there was sheets that went with the station I also included those for their reference.
For those that do not have an extra bulletin board or dry erase board space this is another display option. I included 2 different letter sets that spell out "write". Holy cuteness, right? This is basically the same idea as the one I use except this is more portable, which I like. If my students are too far from the board they can grab this tri-fold and take it with them.
As I stated above, I would use Velcro dots to use for display purposes. This will make it super easy to change out stations when needed.
And we have another option.........
This came from Stacey over at Teaching Ever After. She prefers to use grab and go file folders for the students to use at their desk. These would also be great after a station is "retired" but the students still ask for it. Once you get them laminated then the students can just use a dry erase marker over and over.
If you like the option above & prefer to save paper, binders & sheet protectors may also be a choice.
Here is my display that I chose. You can see I have 9 stations going at once. I do a mini lesson for each station before it is displayed. If I see they are struggling, then we will do it together as a class first.
Here is just a peek at some of the options that are included. EACH station comes with a full color sample page. I also included a 1/4 size page in case you display on a board like I am doing. I printed all these pages out on card stock & then laminated each for durability..of course.
Here is a peek and some of the black & white pages that are included. This writing station is 185 pages so I couldn't include everything. I got a little carried away, but that is how I roll.
This ULTIMATE WRITING STATION is part 1 of 2. I am not promising when part 2 will come out. My goal is to get it finished this summer so we can have it for back to school time.
