Controlled Writing Activities


Copying: To help learner become comfortable with writing words and sentences.

  • Ask learner to read something and circle words s/he wants to learn. Copy them onto separate index cards for sight word practice.
  • Ask learner to copy all the traffic signs on his/her street. Then review them together.
  • Ask learner to copy a language experience story s/he dictated.
  • Ask learner to dictate a note to a friend or relative, copy it, and mail it.
  • Help learner make a vocabulary list related to a reading. Ask the learner to dictate sentences using these words and then to copy the sentences.
  • Make a crossword puzzle using words learner knows; the learner can copy the words into the puzzle from a word list you provide. (If using a story in Laubach Skillbook, use correlated puzzles.)

Select activities that reinforce a reading, or work with topics of interest to the learner. Keep copying activities short. Ask the learner to copy only materials that have personal value.
