You assign one or two students to be a Work Station Manager. While you are at Guided Reading, if the light is on (see picture below), then students ask the Work Station Manager for assistance. This means you get more time to teach and less interruptions (hopefully)!!!
Some tasks for the Work Station Manager Include:
- Computer Issues (logging in, etc)
- Help with Directions at a Work Station
- Finding Materials if someone needed something
I found the lanyards and the press light at the Dollar Store!
You can get a copy (FREE) of the Work Station Manager Badges here!
If you have other ideas to help with classroom management during literacy work stations please leave a comment :)
