I have included three differentiated sets of papers, which I copy back to back, for students to use in guided reading or in a writing intervention, for students who need help in listening for sounds and remembering how to spell high frequency words.
In guided reading responses, the teacher, individual student or group comes up with a sentence or two, depending upon their level.
The students listen as the sentence is repeated and give it a try on their own.
After the students have written their first try, the teacher then has the students help write the sentence correctly. I usually write it on a whiteboard to be sure the students see how the letters are formed and that the spacing is correct.
The students copy the sentence and check it again with the sentence the teacher wrote.
As the students finish copying their sentence, or as they are working, the teacher can take the student’s paper and see what they need to practice. On the back, they can write letters or words the student needs to practice.
