This year I have a group of children who are really struggling to write in sentences. At some point along the way they have not understood how to write clearly. They are not the weakest readers in the class and nor is their speech and language lagging behind – they simply haven’t grasped how and where to put full stops in the right place.I have tried a few techniques for getting them to correct their work and learn to start a new sentence correctly. There is not one solution to this problem and neither will the same technique work for every child but you will see that these strategies can and have made a difference to these children.
