About this book:
This book contains a collection of Valentine’s Day-themed sentence building printables and follow up worksheets intended for use with children in Kindergarten (Prep) and Grade 1.
Directions for use:
There are a couple of ways in which the contents of this unit can be used to target the different learning levels of students:
1. Sentence Scramble Center: Print the word/picture cards (p. 5-14) and laminate them for durability. Cut along the dotted lines to separate them. Each one is numbered to show the ones that belong together in a sentence. The aim is for children to arrange the cards to build a sentence, and then complete the corresponding cut and paste sheet from the first set of worksheets (p. 15-35).
2. Cut and Paste Word Work: This activity (p. 36-56) is an easier alternative for children who cannot yet build sentences independently; they use the sentence on each page as a guide to order the words correctly. Using the word/picture cards for this activity is optional; set up is as outlined above.
The worksheets in this book can be used while working with the entire class, in small groups, or individually. They can also be assigned as homework for additional practice to reinforce sight words and vocabulary learnt in the classroom.
