What is this activity?
Each Making Sentence activity adds more sight words, hence making the activity more difficult. This activity introduces a few sight words at a time with the intention of helping children truly learn this activity. Do not move to the next Making Sentence Activity until you feel the kids have mastered the first few sight words. This could take 2-3 weeks.
Why is this activity important for early literacy?
Many preschoolers are right on the cusp of learning to read fluently. The experiences and activities preschoolers participate in now will build a foundation for their reading and writing comprehension and abilities. Making Sentences is a great foundational reading piece because it not only introduces children to sight words, but they have to pay attention to the direction a sentence goes and it helps with one-to-one correspondence (finger to word matching) when they reread the sentence.
