About this Resource

Kindergarten, Grade 1, beginning readers and writers. This is a modelled sentence writing activity to support the Balanced Literacy anchor book, "Where are the pets?" Students listen to and read a modelled sentence. Then they select words that are randomly arranged from the grid to write the sentence.This activity supports the BC Ministry of Education prescribed learning outcomes for English Language Arts Kindergarten – create simple messages using a combination of pictures, symbols, letters, and words to convey meaning; and English Language Arts Grade 1 – create straightforward informational writing and representations, using prompts to elicit ideas and knowledge, featuring sentence fluency by using simple sentences, patterns, labels, and captions – word choice by beginning to use content-specific vocabulary and some detail. Created by SET-BC and inspired by Vanessa Griffon.
