Practices upper and lower case "a" and "n". There is also a sentence with "an" words to trace and students draw a picture to match the sentence to practice reading and visualization.
2 pages practicing onsets, rimes, reading and spelling.
1. Students choose 3 words from the an family, draw a picture of it and write a sentence with the word. High frequency words are also included on the page. This activity is especially helpful in getting reluctant or struggling writers to write a complete sentence, while allowing more capable students to write to their ability.
2. Students are given a page with a picture of a man and a van and create a sentence using those words and the picture as inspiration.
