Practice with Purpose: Literacy Work Stations for Grades 3-6
How to set up hands-on literacy work stations for intermediate students!
by Debbie Diller
In her 30 years as an educator, Debbie Diller watched primary students work successfully at literacy work stations as she wondered with teachers, "Why don't we have upper-grade students doing this? Could we kick it up a notch?"
In "Practice with Purpose," Debbie shows teachers of grades three-to-six how to establish routines for independent reading and response writing and how to set up and manage a variety of hands-on literacy work stations for intermediate students so that all students can be successful doing meaningful independent work.
The extensive appendix includes time-saving tools such as management board icons, graphic organizers, task cards, and recommended Web sites and children's literature.
