The two tracking print documents in this product are used for differentiation in my class. Some students are ready to read sentences when we practice tracking print, while others may feel more comfortable reading individual words. For students who are unable to read words, they might use this practice in a small group where the teacher reads the words and their goal is to show how they would track print without reading the words independently.
I found myself reviewing my lessons plans on how to track print and wanting some independent practice for my students. Now, I know the best way to track print would be to use a developmentally appropriate text. However, I wanted to use something that was not as overwhelming the first time my students tracked print so that when they track print in a book they have had prior experience!
