Not every word can be found on a word wall. One of the skills a beginning writer must develop is the ability to sound out words independently. Even if a child knows every letter and sound, sometimes putting sounds together to spell words is a little tricky! Developing the self-confidence to try is so important to a beginning writer!!! These practice pages with big fun pictures allow students to practice this skill in a non-threatening way.
This pack includes five labeling practice sheets with large graphics and boxes to label. They are:
crab (crab, claw, cloud, sand, sun)
well (bricks, house, roof, pail, well)
stick and leaf, milk and cow
frog (body, eyes, frog, leg, mouth)
bus (bus, door, street, student, tire, window)
I use these at the beginning of the year to assess what my kiddos can already do and then throughout the year to see how they are growing and developing as writers. These pages are also great to use for independent practice during literacy center time. I hope you enjoy these as much as my kindergarten cuties do!
