This resource will help you sequence a whole week of writing for your Kindegarten writing lessons (or Grade One).
Print the pages and make each of your students their own mini writing book for the week.
This book has a focus on the sentence pattern "They are (apples, leaves, pumpkins )"... (with a Fall/Autumn theme, or use any time of the year)
On day 1 students will read a sentence and then cut/paste words to match.
On day 2, students will again cut and paste (following a guide), but also trace the words to copy the sentence.
On day 3, students will cut and paste the sentence, without any model or guide and also write the sentence on their own within writing lines.
On day 4, students will finish the beginning of a sentence "They are ..." and attempt independent writing
On day 5, students will attempt independent writing and write their own sentence.
You can break up these activities and tailor them to suit your own students if you prefer.
We have included teacher-sized word flashcards in order for you to conduct a whole class modelled writing lessson on Day 1, and show students how the words go together to make a sentence.
These fun books will not only help encouarge the writing process, but also reading, fine motor and sight words!
