Use these patterned sentences along with accompanying pictures to help your emergent reader practice concepts of print (left to right directionality, concept of a word, one to one matching, and simple sight words).
Young readers feel motivated and empowered when working with text they can manage independently. Creating sentences of their own with many picture choices is also very motivating and engaging.
These materials are appropriate for large group instruction for providing teacher modeling and guided practice. The materials can then be moved to a literacy station. Eventually students may bring these sentence frames and pictures home for homework. Hard working materials that serve in multiple ways is the name of the game!
More sentence frames and pictures to come! Make this part of your classroom routine this year!
