Needs and Wants Writing for Kindergarten and First Grade. This is one of a series of "Little Books for Little Writers". They are fun mini-books for your students to complete.
This needs and wants book is ideal for completing before or after the holidays when students are thinking about a lot of things that they might want to receive as gifts. The sentence stem reads: "I need____, I need _____, I need _____, I want _____". Before doing this activity you should discuss the difference between needs and wants. There is also a blank version, so that you can create your own sentence stem or allow your students to freely write their own sentence.
