Gosh we must have the same wave length. I must have typed studnet a thousand times
Seriously, I have developed my own style of work stations. Once I get the kids into the procedures, then I work with small groups or individual students. At times I make a packet of stations for them to do as they want, but they have to do them all. I got some of my ideas from hmthirdgradeteachers at yahoo groups. If you use houghton mifflin they have lots of things for each story. Or just do an internet search. I also have a lot of the evan-moor take it to your seat activities. Everything is practice, with some higher level activities included. With this year's group I have just gotten to the place where I can begin working on RTI.
