Creative - students have to read the words, and then number to put the words in order! Perfect for beginning readers - all sentence puzzles have pictures above the words. All pictures/puzzle sentences in this file were created by Jan McCleskey, MA, OTR. Jan works with students who have learning differences, and needed writing material for students who needed supported reading. Students will concentrate more on the composition of the sentence and handwriting, than spelling with the word/picture cues. These files have been tried out with students from pre-k - through first grade, with huge success in motivation. The students like the puzzle part of forming the sentences! This file is perfect for students with special needs or autism too. If putting the sentence in order is too challenging - simply make this a "cut and write" assignment. Cut the picture/words out and then glue the picture/words in order on a strip of construction paper. Students can then copy the sentence. Or, an instructor could write the sentence in yellow or orange marker, and have a student trace the sentence.
This file is perfect for a K - 1st grade, or special education classroom - as skills can be differentiated up or down depending on the individual needs of a student. Perfect for centers, or writing warm ups! Perfect for summer camps, tutoring, home school and home practice. 46 sentences in the journal - enough to keep a child busy all summer with daily practice!
