Literacy Stations or Tasks

“Students must be able to apply knowledge gained from assisted activities to independent work. “

“Generally by second grade, students do NOT need the full range of literacy stations. However, we realize that struggling readers can be found at all levels, these activities should be designed to meet the individual needs of students. “

-Linda Dorn
