This video shows 1st graders using Interactive Writing, an instructional practice in the K-2 Reading Foundations Skills Block that helps students apply their growing knowledge of letter-sound connections to write sentences using familiar spelling patterns and high frequency words in a shared sentence. First, the teacher reads aloud an intentionally designed sentence. Students tap out each word. Then students analyze the sounds in each word. Finally they reread the completed sentence. This instructional practice is used (with slight variations) in kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades.
