Word Work Station {and *freebie*!}

Hello friends! Do you have a favorite part of your school day? My favorite part would have to be station time. Though, it would be a tie between Math and Reading stations. They both are so much fun! One of my favorite reading stations is my stamping words station and the kids think it's pretty cool, too. :)

Here's a little look as to what goes on during this station that they visit once a week.

This year I finally figured out something that worked to store my stamps in. The cases they come in don't last long. I had seen an idea on Pinterst to use ice cube trays, but I wasn't sure how that would work. And then it came to me, the little baskets I already had would work perfect! Who knew those cheap baskets from Wal-mart would work so wonderfully?! By this time in the year, they can pretty much keep the stamps in ABC order (they know how OCD I am about that!). The stamp pads you see came from Oriental Trading and have lasted all year, which is quite an accomplishment!

Here's a little unit that I use to help differentiate at my stamp station:

And a freebie to go along with it!


  1. Great idea! I have taken the stamps away because they keep spilling them or putting them back wrong and it's driving me bonkers. I'll have to try this!

    1. I just tried the basket this year because all of my cases were cracked and ready for the trash. I like the baskets a LOT better. :)

  2. OCD here too, and so my stamps have been collecting dust. Love your word work stations!

    1. I only have 2 or 3 kids there at a time and they each have their own basket. That really helps. Last year in 1st I would have 5 there and they had to share. It was a mess!

  3. Love the idea of the letter stamps all neat inside the basket! I'll have to give that a try and see how long it stays neat!
