A4 resource that needs laminating so that children can practice writing sentences. I have made them to be used with my SEN / moderate group in year 6 but there is no reason why they would not be suitable in KS1.
Needs laminating so that children can practice writing sentences. I have made them to be used with my special needs / moderate group in Grade 5 but there is no reason why they would not be suitable for younger students.
A worksheet to help younger students (or older children who require support with basic grammar) to form simple sentences. Enter any sentence into the design page, and the words will be printed across the top of the worksheet. On the next line, one word will be missing, which your children can easily find from above and copy in for themselves. On the next line, two words are missing, then three, then four, and so on.
This is a 20 page resource aimed at Year 1 and less able Year 2 on sentence construction.
Each page consists of a picture and the children have to create sentences to include either an adjective, a verb, two nouns or a Proper Noun.
The final two pages test the children on recognition of the parts of speech in their own sentences.
This unit contains a series of writing pictorial prompts with accompanying word walls. It also has several accompanying written responses that can be analysed and serve as reminders to the children to:
vary their sentence starts
vary the length of their sentences
use the word wall when composing sentences about the picture
use capitals at the beginning of each sentence
use full stops, exclamation marks and question marks as appropriate
Connectives or 'joining' words are provided on each slide to encourage more complex sentences.
I use it on a weekly basis to provide a 'short burst' writing task which helps the children to produce 3-5 sentences. I vary the task by asking the children to respond to the prompt on their white boards as well as within their jotters. The pictures are clear, colourful and stimulate discussion before writing and can be easily edited and changed to reflect current topic etc. The models are provided so that the teacher can easily prompt the children to notice a variety of starters , use of connectives and adjectives. I colour code the sentences - green at the start of each sentence and red for full stops, question marks and exclamation marks at the end. The unit is an additional writing resource that requires little preparation and complements longer writing tasks.
A resource to use at the beginning of the day. Simply change the date on a daily basis to practice days, number and month. Also select correct weather statement for the day. These flashcards can then be stuck onto the backing board with blu tac.
Resources for a ‘Stealing WOW words’ display. As children read different stories, they can pull out the words that they don't know and after they find the definition and they think it's a great word to know, they can write it down on a WOW card.
Make into a toblerone tube so that children can have resource infront of them during independent writing.
This is in a word document so that it can be altered to suit different levels. This was made for a couple of children in my moderate yr6 class but once my class have their literacy targets I will make one specifically for each child.
