Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come! - Section 3: Extending understanding


Many of my students come with little or no experience with writing.  For the first few weeks of school I offer my students this scaffolded traceable sentence frame.  It builds the concepts of left to right directionality when writing.  It also helps students see that we put spaces between words and write those words with proper letter formation.  They are weaned off of these within the first month of school, but they really help set the standard for formal writing expectations.
