  1. Thank you so much!

    I've just started a yr 1 position as a graduate and really appreciate all the literacy group ideas. Will be making them ready for term 4 🙂

    I really like these videos. Resources and new ideas are so important starting out.

  2. Thanks for posting. What a great video! How long does your literacy group go for? And how much time do students spend per station? Thanks!

  3. Hey! Im a teacher in Melb, I have just stumbled across your page! love it. And yes! Limited primary teachers in Australia vlogging so thank you! Ive been teaching in uk and nz after uni and they dont have literacy groups like us so im still a newby at this.
    I would love to see how maths is intergrated into literacy groups.
    How do you have enough time to correct all the work they have been doing, I feel like that would be a lot when you still used booklets? Where does their work go after that? Is it used for formal assessment at all? How do you use that information to guide your teaching?
    I am really interested in knowing what happens during your literacy groups in the 10 minutes you've got with them. I feel like my time is taken up with just reading and don't have time to teach a new skill. I am guessing this is through planning and what you want them to achieve through every lesson but I totally understand how time is of a virtue! I also find it difficult to keep discussion going further to get to a deeeper level of understanding. Do you tell them the focus of lesson? is it focus of day or week? How do you keep conversation going the second day with the book? Thank you so much! Sorry for all the questions!

  4. Hey there Teacher Tales. I find it interesting how good teaching pedagogy translates across the globe! 🙂  I am based in the UK but have been an advocate of literacy rotations for some time now, especially when teaching children to read and interpret texts. Like others who have commented, I am interested in Maths rotations. Good luck!

  5. Love all your literacy station ideas!! Do you just pick any 7 of the activities you have in your folders and mix it up everyday?

  6. Thank you for uploading this video. I'm in my third year of my primary teaching degree and these activities have given me such inspiration in an area I was lacking it. Thank you so much!

  7. Thank you for posting this – I am looking to upgrade my literacy centers as well. This is my first full year on grade 2 and I am always looking for games/ ideas for my students. I would love to see your "boring sentences" as a resource. My students struggle to make five point sentences, and I feel like this game would really help them.
    I would also love to see the numeracy centers you include.

  8. Literacy Rotations has always been a bit of a challenge for me, also. I teach Year 3 and 4, and we do rotations on Thursday and Friday mornings, after I've taught a skill earlier in the week. Over the two days the kids do a task each for spelling, grammar, reading and handwriting.
    I loved the spelling task, where the kids make the phone number of their words. I'm going to be adding that to my spelling task cards. My kids will love that!

  9. It can be hard at times to give kids choice yet making sure they complete a variety of tasks you need to assess on.. you have done a great job of finding that balance. 👌 and I love how you incorporate numeracy vocab into your literacy rotations

  10. I would love to see the type of activities you have for numeracy.Thank you for including links to all of the resources 🙂 x

  11. Great resources and ideas! Thanks for sharing this. I'm sure this will assist lots of teachers in the lower grades 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼I love your snap lock bag alphabet activity !

  12. Great video! Id love to see one on math activities too! Loving all the free resources you've made use of, I'll definitely be checking them out when I get a chance.
