Debbie Diller’s Simply Stations series, for grades K-4, guides you step-by-step from incorporating literacy standards, setting up and launching literacy stations (literacy centers), varying and refreshing content, to reflection and ongoing modification. Every book provides answers to the perennial challenge, “What are the other kids doing while I’m teaching in small groups?” Your students will soon be purposefully engaged and making critical steps to owning their learning.




Every book in the Simply Stations series features:

  • Full-color photographs to show what kids are doing at each literacy station
  • Guidance on how to plan literacy stations using student data and key literacy standards 
  • Recommendations by grade level at every step, including grade-appropriate materials and resources for each station 
  • Whole-group lesson plans, differentiated by grade level, to introduce and support partner work
  • Printable tools for teachers and students to use in planning, teaching, and station practice
  • On-the-spot formative assessment ideas and trouble shooting tips
  • Ideas to improve English Language Learners' language acquisition, including online Spanish-language materials
  • Dozens of time-saving downlodable resources for teachers and students to ensure success
  • Affordable pricing ($22.95 per title), so you can buy multiple titles in the series
