List writing is an ideal writing activity for beginner writers. It is much simpler for children to begin writing a list than a story. List writing is a real-life form of writing that can be used on an every day basis.
There are five list writing themes in this packet:
Each list writing theme has three skill building activities:
- Cut and paste categorizing and grouping objects based on a theme. This activity is done to introduce children to the concept of writing lists based on a selected subject or topic.
- Cut and paste categorizing and grouping objects with list writing. This activity introduces list writing with the support of pictures.
- List writing with no picture support.
For each theme a picture word poster has been provided which can be used in writing centers.
Lastly, blank templates have been provided for all graphic organizers so children can select their own topics for list writing.
