Back To School Writing {Drawing Detailed Pictures}

Hello friends! I recently asked Kindergarten teachers what was the most important thing to work on when beginning to teach writing. Most answers were the same, but the one that almost all teachers said was, DRAWING DETAILED PICTURES!

I have a few monthly work on writing units. In those units, I have included a couple of pages that work on drawing a detailed picture. Well, I thought why not create an entire pack!? So, I DID! :-)

You can head over to my blog to read more about this new pack. You can download my new Freebie in my TpT store. Simply click on the title page to go directly there. Make sure you head over to my blog too!

Beach Theme Sentences

I know school is just around the corner, but I CAN'T let go of my summer vibe!  I made a little Beach Simple Sentence Freebie for you to use when practicing writing sentences.  My students LOVE this because there are so many activities for them to do on one page...

For each page the students:
Read it.
Trace it.
Write it.
Cut and paste it.

These are fun and engaging, and once the students are trained on how this sheet works, they can start building sentences all on their own!

Back to School Word Work Freebie!

Hi everyone! Kristen here from A Day In First Grade. I hope that the summer is treating you well and that you are able to RELAX and enjoy some down time. However, if you are like me, my "teacher brain" never shuts off!

I have been thinking about the ways to kick off work on writing and word work in my classroom and made a few freebies that might help you!

First off, I have a whole PDF available that outlines my writing center available on my blog. In the PDF you will find posters, writing pages, and more! You can get it by clicking on the picture above!

I also made some word cards to help me kick off word work and write the room in my classroom. To get them, simply click on the pictures below.

Feel free to head over to my blog to read all about how I set up writing in my classroom and to grab your freebies!

I hope you enjoy them!
