Differentiated Stations

Can I just say that I'm having an UBER hard time of staying on top of it all this year?  I feel like I'm a last minute Lucy.  I'm amazed at how easy it looks for others to "get it all done", but this old gal is just tuckered out each night at 9.  My kiddos are only 12 and 7, so I can only imagine how busy life gets as they get older.  Lord help me stay afloat!!

 So,if you're a last minute Lucy like me---hold on...let me change the tone.  If you are a Busy Beatrice, and also trying to get things accomplished for your class this week--check this out.

I've been working really hard on trying to differentiate my stations even more for my kiddos this year.  I have many on a Kindergarten level, and it's difficult to stay on top of it all. This pack really incorporates the skills that we are all working on.  From phonics to writing to grammar in the ELA activities and focusing on place value for math, this pack will be a winner for my students.

Basically, I extended the differentiation in an old set that I had made.  You can check it out by clicking on the image below.

Forgive me, as I get nervous when doing videos--and I completely zoned out there for a second.

  4. St Pats Day is always during my Spring Break, so that is one holiday I do't have to plan for.lol I'll say it again, you amaze me withthe amount of work you get done! Do you retain kids at your school? I've known of some districts here that retention is taboo. I've got a couple of kids that are making Fs (yes, we give letter grades in first grade). I am pretty sure one of them had ADD and the other ADHD, but one of the parents would rather have her son put in lab than try to help for him.
