Reading Street Common Core Supplement (2013) FIRST GRADE Unit 2
SIMPLE WRITING CRAFTS with and without word banks
If you are looking for a very simple way to add a fun craft and writing to your Reading Street routine, then this may be the answer!
These super simple crafts and writing activities were designed to align with the following Reading Street Common Core FIRST GRADE stories from Unit 2:
A Big Fish for Max
The Farmer in the Hat
Who Works Here?
The Big Circle
Life in the Forest
For each story, you will get one page with a character's head (2 per page to save on paper). Note: There are 2 different heads included for Who Works Here? (one blank face allowing children to create their own community helper) and for The Big Circle (2 different dinosaur heads).
Then you may choose from the following options to differentiate:
- 1 page with the Story Title and a Writing Prompt (lined paper)
- 1 page with the Story Title without a prompt which will allow you to assign the prompt or have the students write without giving them a prompt (lined paper)
- 1 page with the topic name [Example: Farm Animals, Bees, Dinosaurs...] which will allow the child to write a story about that particular topic (lined paper)
- 1 page with the topic name and a word bank which will help with spelling and possible ideas for writing (lined paper)
Each page gives you cutting lines and tells you where to paste. After writing the story, the children simply color, decorate, cut, and paste.
Cuteness made simple!
Note: If you are not using the Reading Street Series, you may still use the pages titled RABBITS, FARM ANIMALS, COMMUNITY WORKERS, DINOSAURS, FOREST ANIMALS, AND BEES to write and complete the crafts.
