1. Assembly Instructions page & suggestive use for activity.
2. Sentence assembly key for students (i.e. blue = noun)
3. 3 sentence strips (color cards that can be kept together or cut apart)
4. 2 pages of each: noun picture cards, verb picture cards, place/object picture cards, and adjective picture cards.
5. 1 page of preposition picture cards.
*PLEASE NOTE THAT THE LAST PAGE IN THE PREVIEW WAS REMADE TO INCLUDE ORANGE SQUARES*
Instructions for Suggestive Use:
1.Place all the cards on the table or separate by color/parts of speech in different containers. With my younger students, I separate them but for my older students, I have them utilize the assemble key.
2. Review the assembly key with your students and talk about what each part of the sentence is (i.e. an adjective is a describing word)
3. Start small; use just the blue and green squares – for example “girl eats”. Then add the other colors: red and purple- “Girl eats in car”. I add the adjectives/orange squares after we have been practicing for a few sessions so that the students get used to the format of the sentences.
Have the students use the silly sentence assembly key to assemble their own silly sentence – placing the cards in order by color. Each card has both a picture and word on it. The word is written in the color that corresponds with its part of speech (i.e. nouns are captioned in blue font).
4.Have the students read their (silly) sentences aloud!
5. If desired have the students write their sentences as well (sometimes with my younger friends, I even let them draw a picture with it!
