Includes 5 opportunities for students to write telling sentences in response to a prompt as well as 4 chances for students to find the mistakes and correct example sentences. In each sentence students will be giving information about themselves, so it is a perfect back to school activity for a first grade classroom. It could also be used in Kindergarten or Second grade. Includes black and white pages only. Other products will include black and white and color. This pairs perfectly with my Back to School Opinion Sentence Writing found here:
Back to School Opinion Sentence Writing
Here's more on how I use this product:
I use this packet along with my Back to School Opinion sentence packet in the first weeks of the school year to introduce simple sentence writing, the concept of a telling sentence, starting sentences with a capital, ending with a period, and editing. They also help me get to know my students.
Students find these packets fun and enjoy writing about themselves, which allows writing instruction to get off to a positive start for the year. I follow these packets up with my Noun and Verb Beginning Sentence Writing packet to review the parts of sentences before we begin writing paragraphs.
I include the term informational writing while we work through this packet to give students an early introduction to the terms for the forms of writing they will work on in first grade.
