My Language Arts Stations for the Weeks of 5/19 and 5/26

These are the last language arts stations for the school year.

Station #1 - Guided Reading and Sight Word Flash Cards

Station #2 - Listening Station and Computers
On the computers, we're working on typing our sight words.

And at our listening center, we're reading...

Station #3 - Highlight-a-Letter
We're finishing up with the year with Y and Z.

Station #4 - Ladybug Words (Short u sounds)
I found a ladybug picture on the web, which I blew up and printed off 2 to a page. I then found a bunch of pictures with short vowel sounds. To play the game, the children pull a card from the box and name the picture. They then decide if the word has a short u sound. If it does, they get to cover a dot on the ladybug. If it doesn't, they put the card back in the box, and the next child takes a turn. First person to cover their ladybug wins!

Station #5 - Make a Sentence
Using these word-like unifix cubes, the children are challenged to make as many complete sentences they can in the time allotted, and write the sentences on their paper.
