Word Work Stations

I just thought I would show something that has been a lifesaver in my room! Lory Evans has made these amazing word work centers for her Daily 5. You can find the centers here. These are SO GREAT. There are 12 different centers: synonyms, antonyms, syllables, prefixes, suffixes, adjectives, verbs, nouns, contractions, abc order, compound words, (and one more I just cannot remember tonight:)).

We do our centers for about 15 minutes each day. My kids work in partners. 

I have all the pieces to each center together on a large ring. They are stored in the pocket chart below:

The BEST part about the centers? They come with a booklet that matches the worksheet/sorting page for each center. AMAZING! My kids keep all their work in one booklet for the entire month. 

My kids have really enjoyed these centers, and it's been great to watch them master these skills while having fun! I'm not going to lie...putting the centers together took a while, and it was hard work, BUT it has been worth it! (Not to mention I will have them ready to go for next year!)

This is really GREAT! I admire your dedication with your profession. It really motivates the kiddos to learn and at the same time enjoy what they are doing. stickers
