Before I talk about writing, I wanted to show you my Easter bunny center that I made this week! I took a big coffee can and made it into a bunny. Then, I put sight words into plastic eggs. Students take out an egg, open it up, and read the sight word. If they can’t read it, they have to put it back. There are so many different games you could play with this. I’m going to put fake coins inside the eggs next week to change it up!
Now, on to writing! All year, I have told my kids that you need to write a sentence that includes “who” and “what”. Once my students were confident writers, I added the “where” part. The following activity is one way I teach my students to write a complete sentence.
After the kiddos write their sentence, I have them draw the who, what and where picture in the boxes.
The first picture says: The woman is drawing in her bedroom on her carpet. The second picture says: The man cries at the circus. This time of year I have my students make stories out of these. So, they end up being story starters! Click on the picture to download the Who, What, Where page!
