Beach-Themed Write, Read & Draw

by Jill & Cathy on April 15, 2015

Beach Themed Write It Read It Draw It Sentences from The Curriculum Corner | great for a literacy center!  FREEThis set of Write, Read, Draw pages is designed with a beach theme because I was actually being a bum on the beach last week while Cathy worked!  I had to do something to redeem myself, but use the inspiration I got while being lazy! :)

Students cut out and read the words at the bottom of the pages.  They then create meaning by arranging them into a sentence, gluing them in the blank boxes, writing the sentence on the line and finally illustrating the sentence to show understanding.

The first link doesn’t contain punctuation and doesn’t have the first word capitalized, but for those students who still need that support, there is a second document provided for a bit of differentiation. We have also again provided a blank page so that you can differentiate even further by making up your own sentences using sight words or other beach-themed words and phrases.
