Sentence Writing Intervention Work Pack

(0)
A sentence writing booster/intervention that can be printed off to create a booklet of activity worksheets for Early Years and Key Stage 1 children who are struggling with sentence writing. I have used this activity to encourage children to write sentences with capital letters and full stops and to hold and repeat the sentence in their head. • I can ‘hold’ a sentence in my head before writing it down. • I can use a capital letter at the start of a sentence. • I can use finger spaces. • I can write on the line. • I can use a full stop at the end of a sentence. • My ascenders are tall b d f h k l t. • My descenders are hanging below the line g j p q y. • I can sound out my words before writing it down. The intervention helps children to gain confidence when they are writing sentences. Workbook contains; KS1 National Curriculum Aims Pre/Post Assessment Session Structure guidance for teachers and support staff Booklet with colourful images for the intervention

KS1 Phonics Practise - Stepping Stones

(0)
Sharing these stepping stones I made for my Year 1 classroom. I stuck them on the floor just outside the door and leading up to their coat pegs. Every time the pupils enter the classroom, they must step on the stone and say the sound. If they are unsure of the sound, the teacher or TA would say it for them and ask them to repeat it back to pass to the next stone. They really enjoyed the movement activity and were able to continually practice their sounds.
