Reading A-Z - Wordless Book - The Food We Eat - Work on Writing

Product Description
I use this as a picture dictionary (or word bank) for my independent writing center (during Daily 5). It accompanies the *wordless* book from Reading A-Z (The Food We Eat). It is particularly intended for newcomer ESL students and emergent writers. It helps so that they can write 1-2 sentences for each picture of the book.

I was struggling for years to find high-quality materials for these students to use at the writing center. For students with more writing experience, I was using a picture prompt so that students would write a narrative story about the picture. My newcomers and emergent writers would struggle to write more than a few sentences. This resource, combined with the wordless Reading A-Z book, can provide these ESL students and emergent writers with an opportunity to actually write independently. Below each picture is a box for students to write their own sentences. My students have been incredibly proud of their work since I started these!

*If the student is a true newcomer (brand new to English), it may take a few months for the student to gain a minimal amount of English in order to write independently. For example, a newcomer, brand new to the language, might not be ready to write "I see blue." However, if the student has been learning English for a few months, this is definitely something the student should be able to do. Simple sentences are acceptable for these students! And for higher-level students you would expect more complex, detailed sentences.
