Daily Language Practice .....DOL....whatever YOU call it!

Each & every day I want my firsties
 to have the pleasure of....
correcting a sentence with ME! :)
WE do it together , right now...
model, model, model....
later in the year, they will spread their little wings, and...
CORRECT THEIR SENTENCES BY THEMSELVES!
But for now...
we
model, model, model!
To help my little ones with routines they can master..
I have made a packet to guide them.
DAILY LANGUAGE PRACTICE
or
FIX-IT!!
They love to FIX-IT! I think they like to know
adults make mistakes too...
and firsties can FIX IT! 
I printed them back - to - back, cut the pages in half , 
& heavy-duty stapled them together. 
I wanted the whole year in one place!
Lose it.....you owe me! 
OR...my  friends have done 1 month ( around  4-5 pages ) 
in a packet & just complete as they go.
I love the way we discuss punctuation, capitalization, grammar, etc, etc, etc...
They feel so SMART when they know how to "fix it"!
Here are some samples for you to see...







I hope  you can use these to help your kiddos with 
sentence mastery!
Enjoy!
