Writing labs - circle and write labs are a best seller on Jan's store! 6 circle and write labs where students circle the words to create a sentence. Then they copy the sentence onto handwriting paper, unlined paper, or whatever paper they write best on. Includes handwriting paper to write on, or use your own.
FUN! CREATIVE! PERFECT for a therapy kit for the fall! A great way to sample items in Jan's store, yet have many therapy sessions worth of labs. Also perfect for early childhood through 1st grade classrooms or special education.
