Reflection: Classroom Setup Word Monsters - Section 2: Procedure


By using station time to create the word monsters, it is challenging to pace how long it will take for the students to build their individual characters.  It is good to leave sight words lists to cut out at the construction station as well as the teacher's station so that they can get a head-start on feeding their "pet".  The children are less likely to act out when they have a purpose instead of when they have nothing to do until they rotate centers.
