, Chrysanthemum-themed sentence cards
, are a quick, easy and fun way to review and sequence
the story, while practicing capitalization
and end punctuation
Read the cards together as a whole group to practice a lot of sight words
Choose a student to come up and using a dry erase marker
, circle letters that should be capitalized and then add end punctuation. (period, question mark & exclamation point
You can do this on a whiteboard, with a pocket chart, or pass a card out to each child to correct.
For more practice, as an individual activity, have students choose X number of mini cards
and rewrite the sentences correctly on the worksheet
Afterwards, students can swap
their paper with a partner to correct.
I've included 2 sizes
of mini "fix the sentence"
cards for this, which make a nice Daily 5 word work activity
There are 27 mini cards
sheet of paper.
Simply print, laminate and trim several copies for a class set
As an independent center
activity, have children arrange the cards in sequential
To make this activity self-correcting,
number the cards on the back.
Children can also use the cards to retell the story
to a partner or reading buddy.
