A series of 7 themed writing activities that include a word box selection. This product can be used in literacy centres or as a silent whole class timed activity (10 minutes). I have used it to gain a snapshot of the writing styles and abilities of students as an audit, to see whether spelling and grammar conventions are being used and what to teach next.
Each theme has a selection of relevant words from very simple CVC upwards to cater for a variety of abilities. I encourage very young students to copy words or make sentences if they can. For more able students, I ask for a narrative.
Font is South Australian Modern Beginners.
The themes are beach, birthday, Christmas, vet, rainforest, zoo and space.
