Sentences - Writing / Revising / Editing - Grade 1 - Set 1 of 9 is the first set in a series of sentence writing lessons for students in Grade 1. There are 20 sentence revising and editing pages for students to read, revise, and edit. Students will be correcting for capitalization, punctuation, grammar, and spelling of sight words. Students can complete one page per day. There are four weeks with five pages per week for each set. There will be 9 sets in this series. They will correspond to the months of September through May of first grade. Set one fits well with September. Set two will fit with October and so on. This chart shows how the sets in this series will fill out the school year.
September = Set 1 = Reading Level: 4 - 5
October = Set 2 = Reading Level: 6 - 7
November = Set 3 = Reading Level: 8 - 9
December = Set 4 = Reading Level: 10 - 11
January = Set 5 = Reading Level: 12 - 13
February = Set 6 = Reading Level: 14 - 15
March = Set 7 = Reading Level: 16 - 17
April = Set 8 = Reading Level: 18
May = Set 9 = Reading Level: 18 - 20
Set 1 has sentences written at the beginning of the first grade level. Sentences in the other sets in the Grade 1 series correspond to the reading levels as noted in the chart above.
Each page consists of a set of directions, a picture, a sentence with one error, handwriting lines for the students to write the sentence correctly, and boxes for the student to rewrite each word from their correctly written sentence. These boxes can be cut up, mixed up, and then rearranged into the sentence. These writing exercises help students develop their skills through daily practice. The skills and concepts taught will be reinforced and maintained through this daily practice. Each sentence sheet can be done at school as part of a center, beginning-of-the-day practice, partner work, or sent home as homework. An answer key is provided for both teacher and students. Students can keep track of the sentences that they have completed by coloring in the appropriate boxes on the "My Work Is Finished!" sheet.
My Sentences - Writing / Revising / Editing - Grade 1 - Teacher Lessons includes sentence writing lessons that a teacher can conduct with students. These teacher lessons can be used in conjunction with the Sentences - Writing / Revising / Editing - Grade 1 - sets for students. The teacher lessons packet includes materials that can be used with these student sentence writing, revising, and editing resources. Refer to my listings on the TeachersPayTeachers website for additional information.
A set of 20 pages with a picture but no sentence is included in these student sets. This allows the students to write their own sentence or sentences. They can then use the "Student Sentence Writing Checklist" (included in the Teacher Lessons packet) to check over each sentence and correct, if necessary. There are two checklists. One is a bit easier than the other. The students can also use a "Student Sentence Writing Rubric" (included in the Teacher Lessons packet) to evaluate their own sentence writing or those of other students. There are two rubrics to choose for the students. A "Teacher Sentence Writing Rubric" (included in the Teacher Lessons packet) is included for the teacher to use to evaluate student sentence writing.
A blank picture page with handwriting lines and blank cut up boxes is included in each set. This allows the teacher to print as many of theses pages as needed for students to draw their own picture and write their own sentence or sentences to go with the picture.
A list of sight words is included in this series. These are basic grade 1 sight words. The sight words are included in the 20 sentences that need to be revised, edited, and rewritten by the students. There is also a complete list of the sight words that will be used in the entire series. The "Teacher Sight Word List" shows all of the sight words for the entire series. It also shows which of the sight words are included in this first set.
The numbers in parenthesis after each sentence in the "Student Revising / Editing Sentences" section in the Table of Contents shows the teacher which set, which week, and which day in that week. For example, the numbers 1.1.1 tell the teacher that this is the first set, the first week, and the first day of that week. Another example is 1.4.3. This means the fist set, the fourth week, and the third day of that week. These numbers mean this anywhere they show up in the product.
"Sight Word Flashcards", "Sight Word Practice Cards", and a spelling practice sheet, is included in the Teacher Lessons packet. Refer to my listings on the TeachersPayTeachers website for additional information.
I hope you find these lessons and sentence writing materials effective in helping your students become successful writers.
