The other sentence completions have now retired to our writing centers and my kids are doing great on their own! I am excited about these because ALL my students can complete them and feel the success of writing their own short stories.
First a little brainstorming… Take him to Chuck E Cheese! I thought it would work since my students could trace the beginning part of the sentence and just add one or two more words and illustrate.
All these activities are available in my new pack, Writing Activities for Kindergarten and 1st Grade. This will help them and me! Tomorrow we will start completing our graphic organizers to get the sentence structure of our paragraphs.
A few weeks ago I had started creating sentence completions for my kids to complete at writing centers. One of the challenges this year is writing. While I always have them share their illustrations with the class, I created these simple mini-books to be used during writing centers.
We are using bits of Lucy Calkins and I loveeeeee her units, but they can seem a bit overwhelming to my young writers.
This is one we completed whole group so my students would know the expectations: I started one with my group yesterday about what we do if our teddy bear came alive: I added a word bank to the bottom so students could quickly spell the words that are in the illustration.
Another activity I made for my struggling writers is picture descriptions.
These also let my higher students add more sentences on their own while I check in with the others. My kids are able to sketch out their stories, but after that, it is difficult for them to actually put the words on their paper without me right next to them coaching them along… and with so many kids in this stage of writing, it is hard to be next to all of them at once!
I used clip art to make some cute illustrations that my students can describe and then color. I genuinely love to teach writing as you may know but many of my kids struggle to put their thoughts on paper.
With these new kids, comes new challenges and I have to figure out how to make it all work! Some of my students just described the picture, while others made up a whole story about the picture.First Grade Writing Worksheets.
