    WORKSTATION FLIP CHART

    Reading

  • Differentiate Instruction Using Workstation Flipchart Activities:

    1. Assess to determine what students can do and what practice is needed. Use data to create mixed skill small groups. Model how to ask for and provide assistance from group members.

    2. Assign a color name for each group: red, blue, yellow, green.

    3. Use colored vinyl tabs on flipchart pages to indicate which group completes each activity. Change tabs to assign a specific activity per each groups needs.

    4. Allow students to work collaboratively if the content or skill was recently introduced. Delay assigning activities as independent work until sufficient instruction and guided practice have occurred.

    5. Encourage students to assist each other if you are unavailable or working with another group.

    Teaching Tips:

    Ensure activity assignment can be completed within small group period or identify what students are to do with their work at the end of the instructional period, i.e., return to folder or notebook, complete as seatwork or homework.

    Have students read the flipchart page together in small group, and then discuss what they need to do. Consider assigning a group leader who monitors progress and provides assistance if needed.

    Suggestions for extending or modifying a particular activity may be printed on larger sticky notes and attached to a flipchart page or a clipboard. You may use color coded notes or clipboards (red, blue, yellow or green) to individualize instruction for each small group.

    Repeat some activities from the flipcharts for additional guided practice, review or assessment. Use the vinyl tabs to select the assignments for small group work that day and ask students to work independently at their desk to complete the activity.
