Thanksgiving Build a Sentence Literacy Center {Fry Words}

Just in time for Thanksgiving this colorful literacy center is a creative way for your students to practice building sentences!!

This Build a Sentence center is a hands-on literacy activity. Students build and read a variety of complete sentences by placing word cards in order.

The words in this sentence building set comes from Dr. Edward Fry’s Instant Word List (High Frequency Words).Fry words are the most common words used in the English language and are ranked in order of frequency. Set includes the first 20 words.

The first 20 words make up approximately 1/3 of all items published.

All nouns in this set have picture clues that serve as a bridge to decoding strategies and help early readers recognize unknown words.

Word cards can be used to build many sentences just by changing one or more word cards. As students build the sentences, they get practice reading the common sentence phrases again and again, helping them build their fluency.

Super easy, set up! Just print, laminate, cut the cards and you are ready to play!

Use this Turkey themed activity as a fun writing station, a guided literacy center or a homeschool sight word game.
