Reflection: Station Rotation Scrapping Our Sight Words - Section 2: Procedure


I was very fortunate that on three afternoons a week, during my literacy block, I had a high school student who came in to work with children while getting some field experience for his early childhood class.  He was excellent and self-driven.  When I gave him a group to work with, he really went the extra mile.  This activity became his center for the week, and because of this, the children eagerly waited to be in the next group.  They were focused on the task, because they did not want to disappoint Mr. Mark or be excused from the station.  

During Station time (or centers), it is a blessing to have extra hands to lead groups and to manage the activity level.  I try to schedule my volunteers, paraprofessional, and special education services during this time.  It is noisy, but the students benefit from any extra one-on-one time.
