Ready-to-Use Templates to Help Develop Early Writing Skills and Meet the Common Core State Standards
By Susan Stroeher
Motivate young writers with this collection of appealing reproducible templates that offer a wide variety of writing opportunities. Children will revel in writing details about their lost teeth and “boo-boos,” the latest class news and events, as well as imaginative stories about sleepovers with zoo friends, having tea with a famous president, and more. At the end of each writing assignment, assemble students’ completed pages into collaborative books that the class can enjoy over and over again!
Sounding out with assistance:
Be present as your child writes and jump in when he or she struggles with a letter sound, letter recall, writing mechanics, spacing between words, isolating sounds, and so on. Always reinforce what they know and encourage their progress!
