Use this triptic activity to reinforce writing a sentence.
Students create a flipbook by drawing animals and creating a sentence (subject/predicate/prepositional phrase) to go with their picture. This activity is great as a station activity or whole group. Create a class book or have the students create multiple animals for individual books.
Use this with Dr. Seuss' "If I Ran the Zoo". It makes a wonderful hall display.
The triptic also included a cut and paste activity called "Silly Sentences" where students use subjects/predicates/and prepositional phrases to create silly sentences.
