This resource can be used in many ways. Its main purpose is to serve as a prompt for year one writers. The visual prompts remind them what you are looking for as a Y1 teacher.
The six illustrations represent six of the key objectives for writing in year 1, covering the four main domains: transcription, handwriting, composition and grammar etc.
This download includes word documents that you can print and trim. Use these writing prompts in your day-to-day English lessons or for important writing tasks. You may ask the children to self-evaluate by colouring or ticking the things they feel they have done.
Instead of putting these into the children’s books, you could print them large and display them in your classroom.
The illustrations are also included in this download and you are permitted to incorporate them into your own teaching resources. For example, you might put them into smart notebook.
This toolkit is designed specifically to cover the key objectives of the Year One National Curriculum expectations, though it may be useful for children working below their expected age.
