Picture Writing Prompts with Sequencing Cards for Daily Writing
These picture writing prompts with sequencing cards are great for young writers who need more support in early writing. Your students get an opportunity to use their visual discrimination skills to help them pay attention to details in pictures. They may choose to order the cards first (ORDER TO WRITE) or another option is to complete the writing sheets then order the cards (WRITE TO ORDER). Ultimately they will be writing sentences about the pictures given. They also get to color their pictures and sequence the sheets to create their own little book as a keepsake. Simply print the page/s and review the directions with them. Encourage them to write one or two sentences that describe the picture on any given sheet. I also included a blank writing sheet for extended writing should it be necessary. The sheets are great for homework or small group work in which case they can each be given a different page to prepare a group book instead.The picture cards can be laminated and sequenced first and the sheets can be ordered accordingly to match them. I included little circles on the cards where students can write the number in the sequence with dry erase markers. Individually, your students can work on one writing scenario at a time.
The writing scenarios are:-
Getting ready for school
Getting ready for bed
Washing my hands
Packing a lunch
Making Jelly Toast
Crossing the street
Setting the table
Washing the dishes
Starting the School Day
Making my Breakfast
Cleaning my bedroom

Rights and Responsibilities of a Child Posters and Notebook Sheets
Just like adults, children also have rights and responsibilities that come with them. These printables highlight 12 of the rights and responsibilities explained in the UN Charter. I created these posters with kid-friendly graphics and simple sentences to make a clear distinction between both terms. There are 12 Rights and Responsibilities that come in black and white and color. These posters work well as notebook pages or anchor charts for social studies or character education lessons. I included mini version for you to use as reading cards also. This set works well with Children’s Day which is recognised on various days in many places around the world, with Universal Children’s day celebrations or it can be used all year round to enhance social skills. If you might be interested in these beautiful posters and more then check out any of my stores at the links below:

This extensive set of procedural 'How To' writing prompts will give your students many opportunities to write to explain different procedures for others to follow. The goal is for them to write clearly and accurately by using specific instruction to teach others how to perform given tasks. Responses to these prompts can be written in four clear steps (First-Next-Then-Last) or the steps can be written as 1,2,3 and so on.
Included in this resource are 120 colorful writing prompts
5 writing templates from which to choose
Simply print, laminate then cut out the cards. You may choose to group them by color into six sets and have your students try to complete all of that particular color. Store them in ziplock bags or small containers that are easily accessible for your students. Alternatively you can have them choose any color that they fancy. The key skill targeted is their ability to write the procedure in sequential steps. At the end they can staple all the sheets together and produce their own 'How To Book'.
