Learning Objective

Students will learn the sequence of sentence writing. Students will practice forming letters correctly on the line. Students will use their skills to decode the sentence and illustrate a picture.


Teaching sentence structure in kindergarten is pretty difficult. These Read Write Illustrate pages are awesome at practicing writing, checking sentences, and illustrating. Each page has short sentences using sight words and short vowels words. I have used these writing papers as a writing journal, in a writing center, and as daily morning work. The friendly checklists are the best part. It reminds students of what should be on their paper and what to do next.

Kinders and firsties will be able to easily read each of these sentences. First, they practice writing the sentence in their best handwriting. Next, they draw a picture to match the sentence. This checks their comprehension of the short sentences and sight words. I always have them check a friend's paper after they are complete for another round of sentence checking through the checklist. These sheets take less than 10 minutes and are GREAT for morning work routines.

The routine:



Read the sentence.

Trace the sentence.

Write the sentence on your own.

Illustrate the picture to match the sentence.

Go through the checklist.

There are 50 sheets included in two versions. You can choose between 2 on a page or a full sheet.
