We used this to start off our school year because our kinders weren't quite ready for the Read/Trace/Write/Draw activities we had planned. These tracers were perfect for focusing on detailed illustrations that are first steps to good writing. For us, this pack was a life saver. We started off our writing time by echo reading the sentences one word at a time. Then, modeling exactly what we wanted them to do when we said "trace". Finally we would illustrate our sentence asking students what our sentence told us to draw, tying words to pictures. This pack provided adequate scaffolding for our students to prepare them for more advanced writing activities.
Some of my struggling students will continue to use these for a while longer, too. Most of our kinders are now feeling very successful with tracing and have progressed to writing sight word sentences with pictures.
