Sentence Writing Frames - High Frequency Words and 'a' or 'an' Bundle

Sentence Writing Frames - High Frequency Words and 'a' or 'an' Bundle

This resource contains a set of 26 high-frequency word and 'a' or 'an'writing frames. It also contains sentence writing sheets for the construction of sentences. These frames are a particularly useful resource for students who struggle to master the basics of writing. It provides a framework and scaffolding for pupils to achieve some success in creating sentences independently. Writing sentences and reading them back helps pupils to embed and consolidate high-frequency words which they will then be able to use freely in their writing. It is particularly appropriate for SEN students who find reading and writing challenging. The support of the frame makes sentence writing accessible and gives pupils a feeling of confidence - that they can do it! Often the key to success in getting pupils to write is giving them self-confidence. I have used these frames successfully over many years to get older SEN students motivated to read and write independently. The frames can be laminated and used time and time again.
