I use this activity to review what Voyageurs wear and to have students practice applying the letter sounds they're learning to their writing. This is also a good opportunity to have students track print and read familiar words and pattern sentences. Students have learned the vocabulary and practiced writing many times in whole class as well as small groups before we move to this written activity.
I have one sentence sheet for each student, then make enough copies of the images so each student gets a strip. Students cut and glue the image into the boxes on the sentence sheet. They then use their letter sound knowledge to write the word on the line. For the phrase "Je crie ___ it's "He Ho!"
This is activity offers insight into where students are in terms of the letter sound knowledge and can be used as assessment of and for learning. I also invite students to dress up like a voyageur and take their picture. The photo and this activity are a nice addition to their learning portfolio.
