To make Tic Tac Toe in line with the St. Patrick’s Day theme, I have the students use the lucky coins to cover their boards. You could also use some foam shamrocks :).
I love doing stations at my group lessons and it helps me get my different leveled students grouped together. Most games lend themselves to having different levels. I just have the students choose from a different stack of cards. I separate them into color groups and then write the color on a post it note and attach it to the stack of cards I want them to choose from. Sometimes I have an older student help a younger one as well.
The one game that has to be separated into levels is the Lucky Leprechaun Game. I have some pre readers that couldn’t play the staff game and you have to mix the cards all together. So I separate the group by their level of notes they have learned on the staff.
Below are the directions for the games. I leave the directions at each station and I monitor the groups by walking around and helping when needed.
