Back to School Structured Writing
This is a Back to School version of my best-selling 'Sentence Maker Worksheet' files. The 24 sheets will help your students at all stages of writing.
It will allow you to plan a structured writing lesson for 6 weeks (one lesson a week) and cater for every writing ability in your early-years classroom!
I have included a set of teacher word cards so you can implement a whole-class sentence-structure introduction lesson early in the week.
There are 6 sentences that include some basic sight words taught in kindergarten. Each worksheet has been presented in 4 different ways to allow for studnets at different levels.
These versions are
1. Cut and Paste words in order to match model (trace words first, put into correct order)
2. Read the model and trace words already in order
3. Read the model and copy it on blank line
4. Write a sentence or two independently on the blank lines (2 lined options included).
Help children to:
read and recognize basic sight words
attend to print,
discover what a word looks like,
understand that a sentence is made up of words,
understand that word order is important,
we read and write from left to write,
we need spaces between our words,
punctuation is important in writing and reading,
they are able to make their own sentence and read it back,
text and pictures are related.
This file features teaching tips and 24 worksheets that you are able to print and photocopy for your own classroom use only.
The sentences are:
1. I go to school.
2. I read at school.
3. I can play at school.
4. We do our work at school.
5. We like to count.
6. We can learn at school.
Please remember that there is a 'blank' prompt for each option, so if there sentences do not suit, you can get your students to write another.
The sentences are accompanied by simple bold pictures for your students to color. The worksheets are kept as uncluttered as possible and in landscape orientation. These features are ESSENTIAL for new writers!
This file is for you own classroom use only and may not be shared or redistributed.
