This section of our worksheets works to help improve the writing skills of 1st graders. Writing is like anything else, to become an accomplished writer you need consistently write and work to improve yourself. I have never run into a solid writer that has not done this. We are not just born writers. It takes time and repetition to improve. Reading and writing go hand in hand, meaning that good readers are usually good writers and vice versa. Your take away from this is that you should read more often to improve your writing skills. One thing that is often overlooked at this level is that you should use a variety of writing tools. This tends to improve penmanship and in the end result in an increased writing confidence. At the 1st grade level we often encourage students to journal often and always. This helps students learn to express themselves while covering their favorite subject, themselves.
The early years of a child's should be replete with many grammar and phonics lessons that set him or her up for success later in their education careers. By working on all of these worksheets your students will come out of the writing gate by looking at an image and then writing a paragraph that describes the image. This lesson, as well as many other lessons in this series, stirs the imaginations of children that have plenty of imagination to give. Set a reasonable bar for learning expectations by introducing Easy Teacher Writing 1st Grade worksheets in the classroom. Most of the worksheets come with an answer key.
