This is a graphic organizer for beginning readers.
The teacher writes the first word of a sentence on the lowest part of the ship. Immediately above, the word is repeated with an additional one or two words of the sentence. This process is repeated until the entire sentence is written at the top of the ship. Emerging readers can then practice reading the sentence from the bottom of the ship up, constantly repeating the words as the sentence grow longer.
Great for building fluency and practicing recently decoded words!
