Here are a few sample rotation schedules you can use to organize your groups and plan where your color groups go each day. These schedules were shared with Slaughter by Malvern teachers.

Student Groups - Tabor Rotation Model
In the model below…nothing ever moves in your pocket chart. Students visit the stations twice each week. Students go to the top station first and then to the bottom station…two stations each day. On Thursday and Friday, you will need an additional station because your Teacher Table will not be heterogeneous groups…you may have kids from each of the four groups that need to work on a certain skill, so 4 groups of kids will be in stations while you have students at your table.
*Teacher Table is NOT one of the 4 stations on Th/Fri, so you’ll need an additional station. This could be paper/pencil practice.

In the model below…nothing ever moves in your pocket chart. Students go to the top station first and then to the bottom station…two stations each day. On Thursday and Friday, you will need menu of engaging activities that are student-directed. You can put spiral review, application of current concepts, or open-ended projects on this menu. The menu might even be used for more than one week. Change the menu options when you see that…1) most students are finished with that option OR 2) there is an option that isn’t engaging enough to get/keep students interested.

In this model, you will need student groups listed on each of two cards to identify where the students will be during the first station and then for the second station. You will change these cards for Day 2 and Day 3. The chart shows Day 2 Station assignments. For Day 3, red and yellow groups will switch to Manips and App/Tech. Green and orange groups will switch to TT and Games.

OR…you could use 4 rows on your pocket chart and never have to move the cards. In this case, you would need to list the same student group on 4 different cards.
