This “Fix It, Read It, Write It” packet is designed to help students:
Learn to capitalize the first word of a sentence and the word I. (CCSS.ELA.L.K.2a)
Practice using initial sounds and picture clues to identify unknown words.
Learn to write a complete sentence with proper spacing between words. (CCSS.ELA.RF.K.1c)
Learn to read and write high frequency sight words. (CCSS.ELA.RF.K.3c)
26 sheets are included in this pack. Sight words are presented repeatedly throughout the pack to help students "overlearn" a few core words.
I believe in providing short bursts of engaging activities to help kids work on the mechanics of writing. These sheets are designed to be cut into 3 sentence strips. Each child gets just one sentence to fix and write. My youngest learners are much more willing to focus on producing their best quality work when the task is "short and sweet."
The child begins by finding the error. I like to let kids “punch it out” using a hole punch to remove the error. They can also cross the error out if you prefer. They then write the correct sentence below the original sentence. Large spaces are left in the original sentences as a model to support students in learning to leave proper spacing between words. (I like to have kids write their name on the back of these sheets.) Once students are familiar with these sheets, they work well as a literacy center activity.
(This pack focuses on capitalizing the first word of a sentence and the word I. There is only one error to find and correct in each sentence.)
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
