Simply Stations: Listening and Speaking, Grades K-4



February 2020 | 168 pages | Corwin

Teach students how to practice listening comprehension skills independently – so learning sticks

Simply Stations: Listening and Speaking shows how to ensure that elementary students are purposefully and effectively practicing listening comprehension, accountable talk, phonological awareness, oral language, and vocabulary skills every day. Your students will soon be purposefully engaged and making critical steps to owning their learning.

Debbie Diller has been refining literacy stations (sometimes called centers) for more than 40 years, working with thousands of teachers and students. In this book, she guides you step-by-step through planning for instruction that incorporates literacy standards, setting up and launching listening and speaking stations, varying and refreshing content throughout the year, to reflection and ongoing modification.

What stands out in this book is the full integration of instruction; Debbie shows how whole-group lessons transfer to stations work so students are practicing key skills independently – and gives you everything needed for success:

  • Recommendations by grade level at every step, including grade-appropriate materials and audio resources for each station;
  • Whole-group lesson plans, differentiated by grade level and based on key literacy standards, to introduce and support partner work;
  • On-the-spot formative assessment ideas and troubleshooting tips;
  • Ideas to improve English Language Learner’s language acquisition, including online Spanish-language materials;
  • 30 time-saving downloadable resources for teachers and students to ensure success; and
  • Dozens of full-color, real-classroom photos so you see the possibilities first-hand.

Simply Stations: Listening and Speaking gives you invaluable tips, solutions, and insight that can transform the way your students learn and practice listening and speaking skills. It’s time to boost the impact of your literacy stations!
