Columbus themed center is a hands on way to teach informational text, fluency, and writing. Common Core Standards are incorporated in this Columbus Day Sentence Shuffle Trio Fluency Center. This center can be set up as a center or a file folder game. File folder games work great as an early finisher activity.

Directions for Sentence Shuffle center:
Students will shuffle the cards and divide the cards into three groups. Cards are grouped by the pattern of the frame around the word in the black and white version and the color of the frame in the colored version. Students will take one card from each group to make a sentence. Sentences can be real sentences or nonsense sentences. After making and reading sentences, students will choose 3 sentences to write on the assignment sheet.
