If you’ve taught kindergarten or first grade, you know how hard it is to get your students to write in complete sentences and add punctuation in the right places!
In this kindergarten sentence-writing unit, you’ll teach sentence skills explicitly as you work on a narrative about a shared experience.
Each student follows along with their own copy, adding their own sentences and details in some lessons.
This unit is very guided, as it focuses on sentence-writing. It makes a great bridge from drawing pictures and labeling to writing personal narratives!
• 20 detailed lesson plans take the guesswork out of teaching! Each 1-page lesson includes materials needed and an ENGAGE section to quickly grab your students’ attention and set the purpose for the mini-lesson.
• 20-day and Week-at-a-glance calendars make it easy to plan ahead
• Posters and anchor charts for visual aids and references
• Student activities and worksheets for quick practice of mini-lesson skills, where applicable
• Goal-setting Anchor Chart and Intervention Tips to help students work on specific skills
• Conferring Forms for student notes
• Teacher guide pages with extra tips and ideas
• Celebration Pack with crowns and certificates
