Write & Draw Handwriting Lessons

These are student examples from different lessons and students. We use a strategy of repeating several aspects. One the first day we read several non-fiction books, then connect vocabulary with prompt sentences. On the second we review the books and discuss the 5 W’s, which are Who/What, Did What, Where, When, Where, Why. Then they implement the W’s into a sentence focusing on their EALR’s and IEP goals (start sentence with a capital, word spacing, and ending with a period). The third day we read their sentences from the day before, and concentrate on writing 2-3 sentences depending on academic level.  On the Fourth day we review the books and writings, and take an assessment pertaining to what they have learned that week. On the fifth day we created an interactive project that usually involves fine motor skills (cutting, pasting, organizing & following directions).

Owl lesson – student artifact

This lesson is a handwriting  (writing) lesson that involves reading (reading) non-fiction books about certain animals and subjects (science), and includes cutting and pasting (fine motor skills). The drawing after writing really works with my students who are very eager to draw, and the drawings reinforce what they have learned that day.
