Literacy Work Stations Listening Feeebies




I am working on my beginning of the year Literacy Workstations based on Common Core Standards. My workstations are a mixture of Daily Five and Debbie Dillers' Literacy Workstations. I have a collection of recorded books for each of my units. Years ago, I tried having everyone listening to the same book, but there were always problems, so I decided to try individual cd players using an assortment of books related to the same theme. My collection of cds comes from the many cassette tapes I transferred to cds and cds bought from Scholastic book clubs, I've also recorded a lot of books as well. Last year I had a class who constantly mixed up the books and cd players, so I decided to make cards with the name of the book and book cover on them. When the students finished listening they put their listening bags back and found the card that matched the book they listened to. It saved me time and it kept children from being frustrated by realizing their book didn't match the cd they were listening to. I've decided my first listening to reading workstation will have my students determining the main character in the book they're listening to. The books I've chosen all have a strong main character.  I am including a workstation chart, common core standard chart, book cards and response sheet. 

P.S. If you would like the ppt version of the book cards, leave a comment with your email address. Don't forget your email address, I fee so sad when you ask for things and I can't get them to you.

Hi,
Such a cute idea. Can you send me the ppt version? These are going to help me get a listening station going. I put it off EVERY year because of the training involved. Maybe using 1 cd player per reader will work.
Thanks

Having a listening center that's accessible to students really works! I put a a green dot on play and a red dot on stop using sharpie markers. Once you teach them to look at the little window to make sure it is blank, your batteries will last much longer! I use the cheap cd players you can order from walmart.com or amazon.com and they last!
