You have several options for using this packet.
-as a center
-as a small group activity
-as a homework activity
-as a parent volunteer activity
In the beginning of the packet (pages 4-23), each page has a sentence that can be cut apart. The students can then mix up the words and put them back in order to create a sentence that makes sense.
There is also a dice game on the top of each page that includes different ideas for students to practice the words in the sentence.
The games include ideas such as
-read your sentence in a monster voice
-write your sentence in sand
-write your sentence in the air
-create a poster that illustrates your sentence
-create your sentence using pipe cleaners.
You can copy the page for each student or you can laminate it, cut out the sentence at the bottom of the page, put the laminated words from the sentence in an envelope and then use the activity for small groups of students.
At the back of the packet (pages 24-27), there are copies of all of the sentences in case you’d rather just use the sentences (and not use the dice game activities).
You can also just use the dice game for ideas for you to plan your practice activities instead of giving the dice game to the students to do independently.
The sentences in this packet are based on pre-primer and primer level words with a few added nouns from the dolch list. This means that the dice game will have to be guided because some won’t be able to read the words in the actual dice game. You can create a model to put next to each part of the dice game or you can do this activity in small group or for homework. The sentences themselves, though, use pre-primer and primer words with a few added nouns from the dolch list.
