I'm in Year 4 for my 3rd year runnng and for the 3rd year, I have a 4 children who struggle with the basics of writing. Whilst the rest of the class are learning about embedded clauses, grabbing the readers' interest and apostrophes, these children still need to focus on writing simple sentences that just. make. sense. Their spelling isn't great but they can get by. What is holding them back is simple sentence structure (where to put full stops) and word order (missing words, incoherent word order etc). I differentiate as best I can but, for the Summer term I really think they just need to really focus on the basics. so, Can anyone recommend an intervention programme that they have used and found effective at teaching these basic skills to older children? I have a good TA 4 mornings a week and I want a programme she can work through which would replace their normal literacy lessons. Any ideas?
