Silly Sentence Trains is a fun activity for students to create silly sentences while covering some of the common core standards. Students will begin with the engine and then add train cards….according to the pattern…to create silly sentences. There are three ways that students can record their sentences. First, students can simply write all ten of their sentences they created. Second, they can select their favorite sentence to write and illustrate. Finally, students have the option to create their own book with their sentences and illustrations. The common core standards that are covered in the activity are ELACC1L1a, ELACC1L1b, ELACC1L1e, ELACC1L1f, and ELACC1L1i.
