After large group, the teacher will split the class into half. Half of the students will independent read while the other half work on their assigned daily station. After twenty minutes, the groups will switch. This will repeat for days two, three, and four until all students have completed their stations.

Learning Station #1: Two students will listen to a story on Tumblebooks using an IPad. After the story is over, they will complete a map of the characters, setting, and plot. They will also be able to draw a picture of their favorite part time allowing.

Learning Station #2: Two students will be listening to a story on IPod Nanos. After listening, they will draw a picture of something they "visualized" that happened during the story.

Learning Station #3: Two students will be on Ipads on the ChatterPix App. After taking a picture from their favorite book or their own drawing, they will read their weekly fluency passage for practice.

Learning Station #4: Two students will be using their Choice Boards to decide on their weekly Spelling activity. They can choose between Rainbow Writing their words, using Play-Doh to spell them out, Color Coding them, putting them in ABC order, using magnet letters to spell them, or stamping them out.
After listening to the story on the Ipad, the students could pick one of the characters and write an extension to the story from that character's point of view.
