Put a title for the story on the board; choose any title you think is appropriate, such as: My Favorite Pet; A Trip to the Park; The Big Red Dog; Five Brown Bears; My Best Friends; Silly Sentences; The Party; Down on the Farm; The Ball Game; Santa Claus Lives at my House; Animals, etc. Ask students to look at the Dolch words and use them to make a sentence to start the story. Write it on the chalkboard. Continue to ask students to create sentences as the story develops. Create four to seven sentences.
Tell the students they will work in pairs to create stories using the Dolch sight words. Monitor and help the students as they work. Encourage them to illustrate their stories, if possible. Some students may have problems deciding on a topic to write about; provide some titles on the board that they may choose from, if they wish.
