How will you set up the various areas or stations in your learning environment for preschool?

Mar 8th, 2015

In order to provide you with a clear and concise idea of how Learning Stations can work in your preschool classroom, let’s begin with a working definition. Learning Stations are separate areas set aside in the classroom specifically designed for small group interactive learning. Each station is equipped with teacher developed learning materials and activities which are designed to teach or reinforce a specific skill or concept. The teacher designed materials and activities can be of various formats, including, but not limited to, work mats, games, manipulatives, and/or worksheets. The number of stations set up in your classroom, at any given time, should be limited to three or perhaps four. (This will allow movement in your classroom to run smoothly.) Children are placed in small groups, numbering four or five, which rotate from station to station, as each activity is completed. The Learning Stations can be either literature or theme based, but should be “related” in some way to provide added continuity to the overall activity. Centering your stations around children’s literature, or more specifically, around a particular children’s book, works especially well. The teacher will serve as the planner and facilitator of the Learning Stations. After initially providing the children with directions for each activity, the teacher should try to provide only a minimal amount of support, allowing the children to successfully complete the activities at each station.
