This Easter Roll a Sentence activity can be used for a writing center, literacy center, small group activity, full classroom lesson or leave with your sub plans. Students can also be asked to expand their 3 rolls into a story.
This Roll a Sentence theme includes two board styles, one with eye catching pictures for your lower level readers and one with just words, as well as, a set of picture cards for younger students to use on their templates. Blank boards are also included if you have time for students to cut and paste to make their own boards.
Students roll 3 times to see what parts of a sentence or story they will be using to develop a sentence or story. They roll a character, a setting and a situation/problem. They can record their rolls and then write the sentence/story on one of the worksheets included, or on your choice of paper.
If you don’t want dice all over your classroom consider keeping several ½ cup plastic storage containers, or magnet storage containers from the dollar store with a die in each. Students shake the container upside down and see what they roll. The OT in me would like them to use two hands and roll with control, but several students or a whole class at once might be too much.
Some prep required, cut up the cards and laminate everything to use year after year. I also like to laminate the master copies of my worksheets, that way I never use the last one.
