This packet includes 850+ pages of printable Spring writing pages, picture cards, and word cards for you to use with your students with autism or early learners. If you are looking for a product that you can print and use immediately with your students during writing instruction, writing station, independent work, or homework, this is it!
Like most special education teachers, I run a classroom full of students that range in ability level. When I plan, I always find it hard to find resources that will fit ALL of my student’s needs. This writing packet supplies you with 55 writing pages in 15 different versions to meet the needs of each and every student in your classroom, from non-verbal, non-writers, to students that can independently write sentences on their own based off of pictures.
58 Picture Cards (Use for receptive and expressive vocabulary development)
Sentence Building Word Cards – These cards go along with the writing pages so students can build sentences first and then write them using the sheets. The word cards include the following Dolch sight words: I, see, an, a, look, at, the, is, it, he, she, has, have, for, you, little, big, where, here, and punctuation marks.
This resource is broken down into 5 different levels to help you find exactly what to print for each student. You can have a student stay on one level until they are ready to move onto the next level, or scaffold the different levels each week using the same topic sheet (Mon - Level 1, Tues - Level 2, Wed – Level 3, Thurs – Level 4, Fri – Level 5).
LEVEL 1: Receptive Language/Pre-writers
Who? These sheets can be used with students that are non-verbal and/or students that are still developing fine motor skills pre-writing skills. These sheets can also be used to work on receptive language and sentence structure for all learners.
• Cut the sentences into strips and the pictures out and have the students match or point to the picture of the sentence as you read it out loud or as they read it if they are able.
• Provide students with errorless writing by allowing them to match the pictures to the sentences to create a full sentence then have them read it out loud or you read it for them.
• Cut the sentences up and have the students put the words in order to create a sentence for the picture.
• Add Velcro to the pictures and sentences and put in your students’ workboxes, independent work binders or send home for homework!
