Worksheets designed to teach writing focus on sentence structure and the development of a plot or claim. Writing worksheets for elementary students often focus on tracing letters of the alphabet and writing short sight words whereas worksheets for upper level students focus on parts of speech, grammar and punctuation use.
Students learn to write text when prompted to organize content on worksheets. A practice worksheet may provide five sentences and prompt students to order the story. Worksheets may also include the beginning of a story, prompting students to finish the scenario by writing the end of the story using descriptive language, strong use of sentence structure and a conclusion.
