I LOVE the Pocket Chart! One of the daily components of a Reading Recovery lesson was to reassemble a cut-up sentence. This requires Emergent and Developing readers to "pull it all together" using a variety of strategies. Great for whole group to reinforce sight words, cross-checking the 1st letter, cross-checking the picture, rereading, spacing and punctuation. If you have an alphabet song - tie it in to that first letter cue!
