My ‘Spelling, Sentence Writing & Handwriting’ pack for the Prep year is designed to provide students with opportunities to practice spelling, searching for words, sentence-writing and handwriting using Dolch 2 (Red) Sight Words and QLD Beginner font. These activities meet the Australian Curriculum English Statements (Language: Phonics and Word Knowledge, Literacy: Creating Texts) for the Foundation (Prep) year:
•Know how to read and write some high-frequency words and other familiar words (ACELA1817)
•Create short texts to explore, record and report ideas and events using familiar words and beginning writing knowledge (ACELY1651)
The pack includes:
•Alphabet tracing sheets (A-Z)
•A list of Dolch 2 (Red) sight words
•Word searches with answer pages
•Fill in the missing letters (2 pages)
•Tracing and sentence-making pages (x 22)
•Dolch 2 Spelling Test (2 pages)
Make sure you set your printer to print in ‘landscape’ for this package. Pages 3 – 28 could be printed double sided and given to students as a handout, or laminated and used repetitively with dry-erase/ whiteboard markers. Print pages 29-30 double-sided and laminate. Pages 30-34 contains 2 word searches with answer pages. Pages 35-36 can be printed single or double-sided, laminated and completed with dry-erase/ whiteboard pens. Students just write in the missing letters to spell the given word.
Pages 37- 60 are for students to practice writing the word, by tracing over the word several times, and then creating a sentence using the word. Pages 61-62 are a spelling test on the Dolch 2 (Red) words.
