Launching Literacy Stations: K-8

Virtual & Interactive Workshop

Strategies to grow independent learners

1 Day Professional Development Workshop

Why Launching Literacy Stations?

Getting students to do meaningful, engaging, independent work is no easy task.  It can completely overwhelm teachers, and it's easy for chaos to unleash in the classroom.

Having a launch plan for implementing literacy stations with step-by-step instructions on how to set up routines, manage hands-on literacy work stations, and specific strategies and lessons simplifies this process.  It creates independent learners!

DAY 1 - July 18, 2022 - 8:00-3:00 PM CST

Launching Literacy Stations: Strategies to grow independent learners (K-8)

  • Learn the five essential components of reading instruction.
  • Build purposeful stations connected to instruction and state standards.
  • Discover how to de-clutter your classroom and simplify literacy stations.
  • Create a six-week blueprint for instruction to use at the beginning of the year.
  • Manage literacy stations with routines and built-in accountability systems.
  • Easily differentiate independent work.
  • Learn how to add rigor and relevance to your stations.
  • Receive specific, grade-level content that mirrors your large-group instruction.
  • Organize your classroom library based on interest and student motivation.
  • Utilize specific strategies to lead your students to independence through whole-group lessons, small-group focus, and partner learning at literacy stations

Launching literacy stations provides the foundation to plan and organize independent instruction and practice.

Teachers can directly affect their students' motivation to learn and increase their self-efficacy. The expectation is that a student can succeed at academic tasks by providing purposeful and meaningful literacy activities that are both academically engaging and appropriately challenging.

Kim gives you a plan that guarantees to make your life as a teacher easier while also helping you increase student achievement.

Kim Strobel

Meet Your Instructor

Kim has helped schools throughout the country adopt a Standards-Based Grading System that ensures ALL students have the opportunity to demonstrate learning and mastery of the standards. 

She understands the exact systems and moving pieces it takes to ensure this system is implemented in a strategic manner that supports teachers' learning curve and the achievement of their students. 

Simply put, I have never worked with a consultant that so completely wins over teachers and so quickly influences their thinking and teaching strategies in a positive way.

Paul White

This workshop was amazing and I felt such relief knowing I had a six week plan. Kim makes literacy stations so much simpler than what I had previously been taught. She has such enthusiasm for reading. I left wanting more!

Brittney Persinger

Teacher, William Tell Elementary School

All I can say is, "WOW!". Kim knowledge of reading instruction is throughout and teachers loved leaving this training with strategies and everything they needed for easy implementation.
