I am super excited about sharing today’s #31daysofkindergarten post. And today is all about implementing the Pocket Chart Station in the Kindergarten Classroom. I love this station because there are so many options for students to do, either independently or with a partner. This station utilizes so many of the ELA standards and skills I am teaching whole-group, which then offers reinforcement and practice at the station. I believe a pocket chart station is a must in the kindergarten classroom!

What is a Pocket Chart Station?

The Pocket Chart Station is a place where you have hung pocket charts and students can practice a variety of literacy skills using said pocket charts. This station is easy to implement and does not require tons of purchased items.

This pocket chart station is easy to set up and incorporates much of what you are teaching and using in whole group instruction. I started out using just 2-3 pocket charts, but that wasn’t enough! After seeing Kindergarten Smorgasboard’s DIY pocket chart, I had my husband make my own 6 sided pocket chart and I love it!

This pocket chart stand allows me to have 6 different pocket charts with a variety of activities, focusing on different ELA skills. I can promise that this pocket chart station is worth the time and effort it takes to set up!

  1. Thank you for your great pictures and ideas for literacy learning stations. I am wondering how long you spend this stations each day. My kindergarten class is a half day schedule. Also, do you also do stations like this for math. If yes, both on the same day? Thank you!

    1. Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comments and question! When my stations get up and running completely, I have 3 rotations a day and each rotation is 15 minutes each. Yes, I have math tubs with the same independent practice concept.

    1. Thanks for stopping by and reading! I am glad you will be able to use some of these ideas for your class!

  2. I lOVE your pocket chart stand! My station groups are usually about 4-5 students and one pocket chart just isn’t cutting it! What material did you use to make it? PVC pipe?

  3. What a great post, simple and to the point. I want to have a pocket chart station, but I’ve always been a little overwhelmed by posts with too much information!

  4. I am interested in finding more Playful Poems similar to the one displayed in the pocket chart. Do you have a TpT product available for purchase? If not, do you know where I could find them?
