|Books and Tapes Work Station
I tried to make the worksheets simple and open ended so they could respond freely to them. I wish I had started with folders with notebook paper in them. I think it would have worked better.
You could also use books with tapes that aren't AR. I still have two big containers with books and tapes that I am going to use next, but they aren't AR books.
books with tapes-
-six containers with four books with tapes in each
-six tape players (one checked out of library, one of my own, three bought at a pawn shop, and one from Walmart)
-24 sets of third grade AR books with tapes
Since I have few electrical outlets, I have three tape players on one wall and three on another. They sit on the floor and listen to the tapes and then go to desks to complete the worksheet. I thought they would stay with their group to complete the worksheet, but they get together and discuss the books and it's amazing the conversations they have over the books.
I have attached the two worksheets I have completed so far. They each have nine activities on them. I will need to make one more (six boxes) for this set of 24 books with tapes.
