Do you have students work at centers or stations?
Do you trouble with students mixing up their papers or materials?
Do you spend valuable teaching time trying to organize the station over and over again?
I have an easy way to help manage centers or stations in your classroom
that I have used for years and years... it works like a charm.
I make copies of work on colored card stock.
Nothing big, bad, or even hard... but it works.
Look at this center station from this past week.
I copied the activity onto four different colored pieces of card stock.
When the students come to that station, they pick a color and get to work.
There is no confusion or organization problems.
You can differentiate easily this way too.
You can make one color harder and another color easier... as well as change out the skill used.
When Jill does to complete this station, instruct her to do the red sheets.
Bobby can do the red activity.
My cross off sheet is face down in the basket because of student names,
but you easily color code their names with the colored paper you want them to do.
Sadly, I ask for and receive colored card stock for Christmas since I use it THAT much...
but it is worth it!
