First create the entire sheet by underlining the words which will be replaced by blanks. Keep this as the answer key. Make a copy of the document with a new name and replace the underlined words with blanks. For Pre-literate and Early Literate Learners. Decide on a theme for the worksheet (telling time, items in the house, types of transportation, names of animals, etc). Provide a word bank with pictures at the top of the worksheets. Provide a blank line immediately under or beside the word for the learner to copy the word. Limit the number of words to ten or less. Keep the worksheet to one page. Use a large font size of 20 points or more. Not only does this help with the perceived difficulty of the page, it also provides plenty of space for the handwritten responses.
Word banks are helpful features at any level, but for learners still acquiring basic vocabulary, they are essential. Pictures may or may not be included. In fact, as the vocabulary becomes more sophisticated, pictures may not aid in understanding. A simple list of the words for the exercise is sufficient. In addition to providing space to copy the word, you may also wish to include a section for the learner to write the words in alphabetical order. Keep sentences simple but add more descriptive material to help retain interest. Using the previous example, the sentence might look like this.The _____ drank milk from a bowl. In addition to single sentences, introduce short paragraphs with blanks to fill in.
