In each of the BOB Books Printables is a section for writing sentences with the words. This is not always something you want to have them do at a young age. Today I’m going to show you an alternative to writing, and still using this early reading printable with your child.
The early reading printables writing pages from the BOB Books prinables are not something I want to use with my 4 year old right now, but they do make a great pages for sorting words. This combines fine motor and learning words. This uses the one of the word paths pages. You can see more about using the words paths here. Which every word path you print will have that word the most. We used the “Sam” word path. So the most words we will find are “Sam”.
To print 6 per page:
1. Select pages 13 through 18. (Or pages you need from which ever BOB Books Set you are using.)
2. Move to multiple under Size & handling
3. In Pages per sheet select 6
4. Page order should be Horizontal
5. Orientation should be Portrait.
First thing you do is review the words on the paper. You can ask them the words or have them point to the words and tell you what the words are. The paper has six pages printed on one page.
I gave her three rows of the word paths to cut up. She would cut between each of the words and then paste the words on the printed charted.
Once you have used the ones you cut up look over the page and see which had the most. As stated before it will vary from word path which has the most. You can always guess at the start as to which page will have the most.
I encourage you not to throw away the ones you don’t use. They can be used later with other activities and sets. Also after you have finished up the word sorting read through the dot marker book that you are working on.
