Winter Write About the Picture {also editable}

Winter Write About the Picture {also editable}

This Winter Write About The Picture has been created for emerging writers, with the goal of enabling students to achieve success with independent writing. Students have been provided with a word bank to help with spelling and encourage ideas for writing. To begin to extend sentences students have also been provided with colour words. They should first colour the picture with the ‘best’ colour, then use the finished coloured picture to enable them to begin to write longer sentences. This is the core of this resource. Teaching Points: • Students will need some prior knowledge of what it means to extend a sentence and the role that adjectives can play in this • Students should be encouraged to use as many colours as possible to colour their pictures I have added some extras to give students and teachers an element of choice- Differentiation: • Alternative handwriting lines • A second bordered page for students who wish to write at length • The photo section provides more difficult vocabulary and could lead more able writers towards a 'what happened next' story writing style, should the teacher wish to lead them in this direction • An editable version of all content has been provided for the teacher to make vocabulary choices. Just type your chosen words in each box! This resource will work equally well as a ‘grab and go’ resource or as a small group activity where students are encouraged to verbalise their sentences first. ********************************************************** CONTENT • Cover/Teacher Notes/Contents SECTION 1 • Color the Pictures • Guided Handwriting Lines • Extra Writing Template SECTION 2 • Photo Images • Guided Handwriting Lines • Extra Writing Template SECTION 3 • Color the Pictures • Alternative Handwriting Lines • Extra Writing Template SECTION 4 • Photo Images • Alternative Handwriting Lines • Extra Writing Template SECTION 5 Editable PDF: as above, but teacher can add own vocabulary {fillable boxes} • TOU/Credits PAGE COUNT: 173 ********************************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Writing

Creative Writing Support Words Mats for KS1

Creative Writing Support Words Mats for KS1

We have been trying to improve creative writing in our school and so we asked the children what stops them from writing. Many found that it's the thought of not spelling something correctly and taking time to phonetically spell the word, for many children this is frustrating. These word mats will help with writing fluency. 6 Word Mats are included -Farmyard -Seaside and The Coast -The Ocean -Monster Adjectives -Family -Transport Files are in black and white. Children may colour pictures. Word Mats can be slipped into plastic folders, this works really well.
