A-Z Handwriting pages! Just print them out, place them in sleeve protectors and use with a dry erase marker to save on ink and paper! ELA match upper to lower case letters. ELA associate writing with sounds.
A great visual rubric. It is so important for students to see models! Using a rubric scale to compare weak and strong writing models is a great way for students to begin to reflect on their own writing!
PP said, "musical chairs reading. Play music and when the music stops students stop, sit down and start reading! Lots of fun and something different to develop reading interests." Perhaps you could also put letters of alphabet on chairs &/or sight words.
