In this activity look at a photograph and build a simple sentence by answering the question, "What Do We See At the Zoo?"
The teacher or therapist reads each page, and students solve the riddle and complete the sentence by choosing the correct noun (farm animal) that answers the riddle.
"What do we see at the zoo?
We see a ________ (hippo) . Yes, it's true!
Sentence Builder: "We see a hippo at the zoo.."
After the teacher or therapist has worked through the adapted book, students can practice building sentences with the sentence builder strips. These strips are adapted for multiple learning levels depending on how you set them up. Students can choose 1 word to complete each sentence (Level 1), two words to complete each sentence (Level 2), or build a the complete sentence (Level 3).
After they have practiced with both the adapted book and sentence builder strips, students can complete the cut/glue worksheet.
Students working at an independent level, can read and work through the book and sentence builder strips at a literacy center or work station.
