This literacy center activity is perfect for students who need practice building sentences. #TPTFIREWORKS The students use subjects, nouns, adjectives, and verbs to build their sentences. The activities can be differentiated depending on the strengths of your students. There is a bonus activity included with making blend words.


This is an interactive sentence building activity. It works great in small groups or as an independent work station. The words are easy for them to read and as the teacher you can include only certain words for them to practice. The words are mostly sight words, CVC words and blend words. Students love to make silly sentences and since these words are easy to read it builds their confidence. Included in the packet are work sheets, activity ideas and literacy center ideas.

These are great for small group or independent work.


  • Over 216 word cards (subject, nouns, verbs, adjectives, and connecting words)
  • Words are color coded by parts of speech
  • How to use these in a Literacy Center Ideas
  • Blend Word Cards (40 words) are included for later use or for students who are ready for them
  • Blend Word Activities
  • Detailed Directions for the teacher to use.
  • Worksheets to go with the cards
  • Blank cards to add your own words
  • Differentiated worksheets that involve sentence building


This is an activity in which teachers will use all year round. You will want to print the cards you need, then laminate them. This will prolong the use. I keep all the like colored cards in a sandwich bag and then all the bags in a larger bag for easy to access. You can give students a few cards of each color and then see what sentences they can make. There are sheets they can write down their sentence on. Or students can have a bag of the cards mixed up and see how many different sentences they can make. It can be fully differentiated by giving students specific cards and having them use less/more words in a sentence. The students never get bored with it because there are so many different combinations.
