Verified Reviewer Original review: He has learned so much since he started in December. This is definitely the place for any struggles with school. We would be lost without Sylvan. We had been before and purchased lessons on a payment plan. This time there was a great sale and she encouraged me to purchase lessons outright instead of monthly payments.
Pocket Place Most of our K-3 classrooms have fifteen or twenty colorful pocket charts in many shapes and sizes that are used for a variety of purposes: However, Pocket Place is an area set aside for a specific task for differentiated instruction. One of my favorite uses is for my largest pocket chart. To save time and energy for the teachers on my staff and in my university classes, I have created print ready cards for different spellings for each vowel.
Each game comes with directions, clues and cards and a cheat sheet with all of the answers for the teacher!

Tempera cakes, or watercolors Learning Objectives: To have students slow down and look at the details of things that they see in front of them and not just assume that trees all look the same. Teach them that trees do not need to look like a stick with the cloud plopped on top. I give each student 1 ball of red, 1 yellow, and 1 blue. Then I have them break each ball into 4 evenly sized balls. So now they have 4 reds, 4 yellows and 4 blues. All together we mix 1 blue and 1 yellow.
Then 1 blue and 1 red. Then 1 red and 1 yellow. Then we mix all three, 1 red, 1 yellow, and 1 blue They still have 1 yellow, 1 red, and 1 blue leftover. Now we have all 6 colors of the rainbow, plus a grayish neutral color.

Learning Centers Providing a Wide Variety of Learning Activities Learning centers can help meet the diverse needs and skill levels of young children. Children learn by doing. They actively construct knowledge by interacting with the world around them. Teachers can facilitate learning by providing organized centers that encourage independent activity.
Learning centers enable the early childhood teacher to work with individual children or small groups of children on specific skills while the rest of the class are actively learning.
In addition to providing a wealth of back-to-school tools, the EXPO ® Resource Center also features these activities to help your students fine-tune their prewriting processes and more.
Teachers base differentiated stations on student assessment data, whereas a traditional station is based on whole-group instruction. In a differentiated station, students work within multilevel resources, whereas traditional station resources are not differentiated. Differentiated stations have tiered assignments, which include varied student responses, whereas a traditional learning station only has one level of response for all.
Differentiated stations have tiered activities, whereas traditional stations do not. Multilevel Center Activities Multilevel center activities are teacher-planned tasks that are designed at three different levels: Beginner, intermediate, and advanced—enabling students with diverse learning needs to challenge themselves accordingly.

My ideas on the “perfect” literacy activities. I think that the most important thing to remember when setting up stations is that the children should be engaged in fun learning. If the activities aren’t engaging, the kids won’t participate or learn in them. My children are in primary literacy activities for 1 hour a day. This is when I do my Daily 5 cycle. All of my stations have some form of literacy in them – reading, writing, phonemic awareness, listening, story telling.
