    1. On day 1 students will read a sentence and then cut/paste words to match. You can model using the jumbo teacher flashcards (shuffle, reorder, read, model)
    2. On day 2, students will again cut and paste (following a guide), but also trace the words to copy the sentence.
    3. On day 3, students will cut and paste the sentence, without any model or guide and also write the sentence on their own within writing lines.
    4. On day 4, students will finish the beginning of a sentence and attempt independent writing
    5. On day 5, students will attempt independent writing and write their own sentence.

    You can break up these activities and tailor them to suit your own students if you prefer.

    We have included teacher-sized word flashcards in each file, in order for you to conduct a whole class modelled writing lesson on Day 1, and show students how the words go together to make a sentence.

    These fun books will not only help encourage the writing process, but also reading, fine motor and sight words.
