How To Use A Literacy Stations Planner To Organize Your Small Groups

literacy stations planner

Hi friends! I’m so excited to share this with you! This is a year in the making, and I’m giving it out to you FOR FREE! I’ve been helping teachers set up and maintain their literacy stations in their classrooms, and this is HOT! One of the hardest things to do is plan for your stations when you don’t know where to begin, or you realize that your stations need a complete overhaul and you’re frustrated. So I’ve created a LITERACY STATIONS PLANNER to help you set up your stations, train your students on your expectations, and maintain your content so your weekly prep doesn’t have to take much time at all!

Nobody Showed Me How…

I’ve been there! I remember my first years of teaching (cough) a few thousand years ago, and wanting to set up literacy stations so my kiddos could independently work on different skills while I took a small group. But NOBODY SHOWED ME HOW. Fast forward a few years to the coolest go-getter principal ever, who made sure the whole school was trained on balanced literacy and running effective literacy stations.

And I was HOOKED. Finally it made sense. I spent the next few years streamlining my stations to make them effective for my students, and easy to maintain.

At first, it looked like 3,000,000 sticky notes on my desk, but I’ve perfected my method into a LITERACY STATION PLANNER! Show me a teacher that doesn’t love a good planner!

How The Literacy Station Planner Works

Here’s a video that explains how the planner works:

With the LITERACY STATION PLANNER, you’ll be able to start looking at your stations differently. Instead of feeling dragged down because of the amount of time it takes, it’s going to be your favorite thing to plan! Instead of seeing misbehavior from your students, you’ll see engaged kiddos excited to learn.

What Is In The Literacy Stations Planner?

The LITERACY STATIONS PLANNER has the following sections:

  • Student Groups
  • Station Planning
  • Station Content
  • Materials
  • Expectations

The PLANNER is available digitally on Google Slides or in an editable PDF that you can type in your own information, or print and write it all out old-school style!
