Thank you for checking out this newly updated product! This was one of my favorite self-created resources when teaching elementary special education. It was so hard for many of my kiddos to come up with ideas for writing and to expand on a simple sentence. This works best with the EEI model of instruction and with the use of an anchor chart example with the colors matching the worksheet (Who = purple, What = blue etc.) Depending on the level of the students, there are many ways you can utilize this resource!
This resource worked wonders, and I am glad to share it with you!
This PDF download includes:
-Circle Maps for brain storming ideas for the 5 W's
-Half sheet worksheets for gradual release
(students move from writing who + what to writing who + what + where + when + why).
-Consistent colors for easy memorization (color coding! -- powerful!)
*All you need an anchor chart, flipchart paper, markers, and you are ready to go! Easy, low prep intervention that will help your students master expanding sentences!
