Quick Links: PALS Literacy Workstations Presentation and Resources

      In W-JCC, the Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening (or PALS) tool is utilized in Kindergarten up to third grade to assess literacy development. These are two links which are provided by the developers of the PALS assessment at U.Va. to guide best practices with literacy workstations. Perhaps a reminder or a fresh idea might inspire you in this short presentation you can find by clicking here:

Also, there are classroom activities given for Kindergarten and learners in K-3 the following areas:
  • Comprehension
  • Alphabet Recognition
  • Concept of Word
  • Letter Sounds
  • Print Knowledge
  • Vocabulary
  • Word Recognition
  • Oral Reading in Context and Fluency
  • Spelling
  • Writing

      Check out this link to see concise lists of activities which support the respective areas of literacy development. This is particularly helpful to use for teachers who are new or new to their grade level, as well as student teachers. You can bookmark these as "favorites" and refer to them when you need a source of suggestions for Tier One intervention and individualizing in your classroom. :)
