Introducing Work Stations/Centers

I teach second grade and I'm going to implement work stations during my language arts block this year. I'm using the system Debbie Diller describes in her book, Making Centers Work.

My question for those of you who use work stations (or centers) is how do you introduce work stations to the students at the beginning of the year? Do you introduce one station a day? Do you then have them practice that station, and if so, how do you do that? Or do you first introduce/explain the procedures for every station (as well as how to rotate to each station) over the period of a week or two and then begin the actual station rotation to give the kids time to practice/to allow you to observe students in each station?

Sorry if that was confusing! I'm really excited about using work stations this year but I'm completely lost when it comes to deciding how I'm going to introduce them to my students!

Thank you!
