I designed this unit as a fun way to focus on sentence construction and writing .What kiddo wouldn’t love to unscramble these fun sentences and write the stories to go with these fun prompts?
There are several parts to this unit. The first part is a center activity
that has the children unscramble the mixed up sentences. (Response sheet for center activity included). You could even use it as morning work for the weeks leading up to St. Patrick’s Day, having the children add a sentence or to their response sheet each morning.
The next part is designed as a center activity. The children use the
leprechaun “sentence” building mats to read, build and then write the sentence using dry erase markers (orange and green?) I have also included a response sheet for the children to also write the sentence after it has been “built” so that he/she can keep track of the sentences he/she has already completed. I have included 11 cut, paste, write and illustrate sentence scramble worksheets! And lastly, after building, unscrambling and writing, I have included a leprechaun "word bank" and some fun writing prompts to use for the children to write and illustrate their own leprechaun stories!
It is common core aligned and covers these standards:
SL.K.1 I can participate conversations with my friends.
SL.K6 I can be understood when I speak in class.
LK.1 I can print my letters.
W.K.3 I can write a story and stay on topic.
RF.K3.1 I can spell words the way they sound.
RF.K.3c I can read my sight words.
A fun way to focus on writing and sentence construction! A great way to incorporate holiday fun and activities and keep an academic purpose!
