This packet is designed to target common grammar skills for kids at a pre-k/K level using a cute Fall theme. The activities use visuals and predictable structures to help these young children who are typically non-readers practice grammar structures. This packet targets “verb + ing,” possessive-s, plural –s, using is/are, and using do/don’t.
Verb+ing: Pages 3-12: Your students construct sentences to describe what people are doing in pictures that feature apples, pumpkins, hay, and leaves. There are visuals under each word to help your students construct the sentences. The sentences start with “The boy is ________, “ “The girl is _______” or “The kids are _______.” All of the sentences include “verb + ing.” You could also use these flashcards to work on expanding utterance length. There are 30 different flashcards (3 per printer page).
Plural-s: Pages 13-21: There are 10 different sets of flashcards that use the format “one _____” and “two _____s.” There is also a sentence strip activity where students use pictures of fall objects to create the sentences “I have one ______” and “I have two _____s.” The pieces that go with the sentence strip activity are color-coded.
Possessive -s: Pages 22-28: There are 16 flashcards with forms like “The boy’s object,” “The girl’s object.” or “The owl’s object.” The sentence strip activity uses the form “It is _________’s object.” Students can chose who each fall object belongs to and complete the sentence.
Is/Are: Pages 29-31: Students complete sentences with the correct word, either “is” or “are.” The picture cards contain pictures of fall objects and follow the structure “This _____ (adjective)” or “These ____ (adjective).” There are 18 different cards.
Do/Don’t: Pages 32-34: There are 3 different worksheets that help your students practice using the words “do” and “don’t” in questions and statements. Each worksheet asks a question that starts with the word “do.” Students can answer the questions using the correct sentence structure. There are 12 possible answers on each worksheet. Students can also ask each other the questions.
