Do your little learners need practise with their sentence writing? Space Sentence Writing is what you need!
I believe that a guided and scaffolded approach is what’s needed when teaching sentence writing. I’m also a huge advocate for effective differentiation. That’s why I created these sentence writing worksheets. The best part (other than being no prep for you) is that they are fun and space themed!
There are 7 types of worksheets which increase in difficulty. Let’s look at the options!
Space Sentences – Tracing and Copying
This is ideal for struggling writers who are not very independent, can’t read well yet, and have difficulties with handwriting and fine motor. Students simply trace the sentence and then copy it. Then they can color the pictures.
Space Picture Match – Tracing and Copying with Cut/Paste
This is perfect for your struggling writers who need some practise with cutting and pasting. Students cut out the pictures and color them in. They need to read the sentences in order to sort the pictures into the right boxes. Then they trace the sentences and copy them.
Missing Space Words – Tracing and Copying with Cut/Paste
This is similar to the space picture match, but instead of cutting out pictures, students are cutting out words. They must cut out the words and glue them with the matching pictures and sentences. Then they trace the sentences and copy them, before coloring.
Finish the Sentence – Finding the Correct Spelling
This worksheet will challenge students to read and spell words correctly. They must recognise the correct word, circle it, and write it down in the gap. Then they can color the pictures.
Unscramble a Sentence – Sentence Building
This activity is great for students struggling with sentence structure. They must read the jumbled words and re-write the sentence in the correct order. Then they can color the pictures.
Write a Space Sentence – Independent Writing
This worksheet is best for independent writers who don’t need any tracing or prompting. They simply look at the pictures, color them, and write a sentence to match.
Create a Sentence – Choosing a Sentence
This is good for the independent writers who don’t need to trace or be prompted. It is also great for students who like autonomy, as they get to choose what they write about. They must select a few pictures and color them in. Then they write sentences based on the pictures they chose.
So as you can see, there are seven types of activities that increase in difficulty. Each type of activity comes in 5 versions (with varying space clip art) – that’s 35 no prep worksheets altogether! These worksheets are perfect for Kindergarten and First Grade writing lessons.
