Children need to be able to categorize things in their physical world as well as in their thinking. This series of lists offers an opportunity for students to categorize and put into writing things that they already know about and increase vocabulary.
This packet contains 15 pages with two different lists on each page as well as one page with a double To Do list and one page for a generic list title.
The lists are designed to be cut apart down the middle and used one at a time. You could also use several lists, or the one single lists, and staple them together as a pad for the student to keep a list of things to do each day. The lists are purposefully made narrow to encourage the students to write one word or a very few words as needed for a list. Students are encourage to write sentences all the time and should be exposed to another way to engage with words.
The lists are terrific practice for capitalization rules, apostrophe introduction and brainstorming.
This activity requires the student to visualize information, write it down, and orally read if asked. Reading aloud exposes children to new vocabulary from other students. List titles include toys, lunch, what I want to be, pets, white things, what I know and many more!
Suggestions for use are included.
