These 32, caterpillar/butterfly
-themed, sentence cards, are a quick, easy and fun
way to review the life cycle of a butterfly
, as well as Eric Carle’s story, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”
They also help children practice rules for appropriate grammar for capitalization
and end punctuation!
Read the cards together as a whole group
to practice a lot of sight words
Choose a student to come up and using a dry erase marker
, circle letters that should be capitalized
and then add end punctuation. (period, question mark & exclamation point
You can do this on a whiteboard, with a pocket chart or pass one card out to each child to correct.
Afterwards, for further reinforcement, have students choose 3-6 mini cards
and rewrite the sentences
correctly on a sheet of paper.
I've provided a set of mini
"fix the sentence” cards for this, which makes a nice Daily 5 word work
or writing block activity.
There are 64 mini cards
on one sheet
Afterwards, students can swap
their paper with a partner
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy “fixing sentences”
this way as much as my kiddos do.
