Holiday Sentence Memory Writing

While working with my students this year, I have been trying to work on not only the fine motor aspects of writing, but also the memory aspect of writing. When you can’t remember the words that you are writing, then how can you write the sentence that is made up of those words.

I had the kids glue their butterflies onto my base paper so that they could write at the side of the paper what their favorite thing about valentines day is.  Some of the {Read More}
