PREDICTABLE, PATTERNED STORY STARTERS FOR BEGINNING OF YEAR, Pre K-3
THIS BOOK MAKES BEGINNING OF THE YEAR WRITING MUCH EASIER. The story starters
provide the teacher with a getting-to-know-you unit that requires beginning writers to add ONE
ACTION WORD. The purpose is to provide the teacher with a starting point in WRITING. This
early intervention of providing easy topics gives insight into the developmental level of each
child. The teacher will know how to present letter formation information to each child.
Successfully placing words on lined paper with directions from a delightful, Rapping Ladybug
produces stories that can be read by others.
This book provides a guide for a teacher-parent letter. Once the parents realize there is a daily
routine using predictable, patterned story starters, the parents can look forward to reading the
stories at home. The letters provide parents with useful techniques, such as using the pointy
finger to read, looking at the picture for clues and the repetition of easy-to-spell writing words
used daily. Parents can also be useful in helping the child plan ahead for the next day’s story.
The easy predictable, patterned story starters I can… I can’t… A sister can… A sister can’t…
lead to repetition and predictability which are powerful learning strategies.
Teachers can transition to the Language Craft Story Starters and Pre-Writing Graphing
Activities, Pre K-3, book for additional patterned story starter ideas along with graphing. Use
the Rap and Write Phonics Verses and Directions book for letter formation directions.
