Writing Activity Books

The Family Literacy Writing Books provide a sequence of steps for learning to read, write and spell, and were designed to be used as a supplement to the Family Readers. For example, the writing activities book Max Set 1, Book 1 and the phonics storybook Max Set 1, Book 1, are correlated to be taught together as a lesson. The Family Literacy Writing Books are provided for reinforcement and enjoyment. The number of writing pages used in each lesson may vary with individual students and circumstances.

 

How to Use Writing Activity Books

Page 2 is the same as the word preview page found in the corresponding storybook. This page introduces *new words used in the phonics storybook.  It is an introductory visual overview. Words may be written on the board, or presented on an overhead projector and read together. (sounds are emphasized.)

Page 3 is a guide for writing the sounds spoken to the students as they sound and write the letters and words on their dictation page. (Page 4)

Page 4 is a guide for students to sound and write the words used in the story.

Students use Page 5 to check words they have written on Page 4.  Students reinforce reading and spelling skills as they review the words.

Students may now draw a picture from the storybook on Page 6. These can be colored, posted in the room, kept in a binder/folder, taken home or etc.

On Page 7 students draw a line to connect the words with the pictures that match.

On Pages 8 and 9 students write the beginning and the ending consonants to the words from the storybook.

On Page 10 students circle the words that go with the pictures. One or more words may be circled for each picture.

On Page 11 students write the correct words on the lines provided by each picture.
