These Read Write Illustrate pages are awesome at practicing writing, checking sentences, and illustrating. These are short sentences using pre-primer words and short vowels words.
Kinders and firsties will be able to easily read each of these sentences. After, they practice writing the sentence in their best handwriting. Then, they draw a picture to match the sentence. This checks their comprehension of short sentences. These sheets take less than 15 minutes and is GREAT for morning work practice.
Write sentence on your own.
Illustrate picture to match the sentence.
Go through checklist.
I also allow my students to get a friend to check it before I look at it. This gives them another chance to look at and read a sentence. They go through the checklist once more to make sure the sentence is correct.
There are 12 sheets included in full size. This set focuses on the short u in each of the sentences. I have other sets available that focus on each vowel in particular
