Journeys First Grade Reading
Unit 4 Lesson 16
Let's Go To The Moon
Print each scrambled sentence on different colored cardstock. Laminate if possible, cut them apart and then put the sets of sentences (1 of each sentence) into a baggie. Students order one sentence at a time and write it beside the picture it matches. This activity can be a center or a whole group activity where students work with partners on the floor with clipboards. Students order one sentence and raise their hand for the teacher to check. Students read aloud and then the teacher can ask questions. Questioning includes capitalization/punctuation, subject/predicate, grammar & comprehension over the basal.
Students then write the sentence in their nicest handwriting, put cards to the side and pick another set to order.
It takes four days to get to the moon.
The moon is dusty and has craters.
You can take light steps on the moon.
You can find rocks to bring back home.
