Pencil Control - Star Wars BB-8
Dot to Dot to support pencil control.
A fun way to practise pencil control. Handwriting should never be rushed. It is always good to explore a range of gross then fine motor activities for children.
Using a pencil is not an easy task for little fingers!
It takes lots of time and energy! This little 15 page booklet is a good introduction for those children in EYFS that are ready for that next step-writing!
basic worksheet that i did to help a little boy in a nursery school with special needs,to help identify shapes and to help with his pencil control. comments can be added by teacher to help with assessments
i would sit and talk to the child through the sheet about the sound of the letter speak about the picture ask them to pick there favourate colour pencil, while working through the worksheet i would keep repeating the sound and get the child to trace with there finger first, if they lose concentration i would speak about the olaf picture.
The handbook includes background information for teachers about common spelling patterns, useful strategies, including mnemonics, and spelling and phonic games. Many of the ideas resources have been posted elsewhere - acknowledged at end.
7 sets of cards in JP order. There are decodable words with matching pictures. If you cut them up and laminate them they would be suitable for independent work, for a small group working with an adult, or for your whole class phonics.

Three differentiated worksheets, suitable for Year 1 & 2 pupils.
1 - Storyboard sheet with pictures and lines underneath for able writers to write each part of the story.
2 - Storyboard sheet with pictures and parts of the story with gaps for pupils to fill in.

PowerPoint presentation which details a simple instruction writing model - 'How to Clean Your Teeth' with a clear and concise layout.
Each slide is colourful and engaging and allows a teacher to explain the instruction genre.
Also included are sequencing, cut and stick flashcards.
Children may assemble the instructions as a paired activity cutting and pasting sequentially onto sugar paper. This task is ideal for reinforcement and will support less secure learners in an active way.
This can be used and easily adapted for other simple instruction models-
e.g. How to make a sandwich
These resources promote an active approach to writing instructions. They complement other resources within my shop - 'Writing Instructions- Introducing the Genre in an Active Manner' and Writing Instructions - 'How to Build a Snowman' which has additional literacy tasks included.
I have included several slides within the preview to allow teachers to peruse the resource more comprehensively. Hope your earners enjoy the lesson and tasks.
