    Hey all! I'm wanting to put together a free e-book on my blog of literacy work stations tips. I would love to know your favorite tip for literacy stations/work stations/literacy centers (whatever you might call them in your classroom). It could be about management, set-up, teaching, your favorite work station, etc. My goal next year is to try and go more than a tad bit paperless with my work stations and to help others do the same. Thank you for any tip you can leave!

    My students' favorite center is what I call "spelling hot potato." You need a support person or student volunteer to run it, though. The kids gather around and play "hot potato" with a bean bag while music is playing. If they are caught with the bean bag when the music stops, they must spell a word of their weekly word list or they are out.

    No paper needed and nothing to grade. I give a small prize to the winner - fancy pencil, eraser, etc.
