Are you embracing the benefits of play-based learning in your classroom? If so, this set of ‘action station’ labels might be just what you need! 


This set of Action Station cards comes in 2 versions:
  • PRINT VERSION – simply print and laminate your physical table signs before displaying around the room
  • DIGITAL IMAGES – these are perfect for inserting into your online planning or tumble template (great if you’d prefer to share/display your rotation in a digital format!)

This resource includes:

  • 25 different ‘action station’ labels (in both large & small sizing)
  • The large labels (A4 sheet) are designed to be printed, laminated and folded in half to form a ‘table tent’ for easy display. One side includes the name of the activity, and the other is blank with a ‘we are learning’ prompt (perfect for attaching post-it notes that highlight the skills being fostered by the activity if needed!)
  • The small labels (4 per A4 sheet) are designed to be printed, laminated and included in your tumble/rotation to guide your little learners through their activities
  • Each label includes the name of the activity & bright matching illustrations to support the comprehension of your lower level readers
