Updated 1/16/2017 download again if you own.

I don't list this for K, but we have sold lots of these to kinder teachers after adding the mats which use fewer words. You can check out some of the feedback from kinder teachers.

We've added a freebie set to try: Click here to see the FREEBIE set of Silly Sentences.

This comes with the Literacy Center bundle - please do not purchase if you own the bundle - you already have this :)

This is one of the most popular activities in our monthly centers bundles. We've had numerous requests to list these on their own, so here they are. Included are ALL the Silly Sentences sets from September to June, so you get 10 months worth.

Please see the preview for a better idea of what's included

Students will put the red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple cards in piles, in that order, in front of students. Let students pick one card from each pile and create silly sentences. Once they put one set of cards together to make a sentence, they must read it out loud. Students can create tons of different sentences and practice reading them! There are also mats where they read and write the sentences.

We have also included recording sheets – I start my students with larger lines at the start of the year and then gradually make the lines smaller to get their handwriting smaller.

Teachers have requested these in BW even though the color is needed. Several have printed these on the corresponding colored paper or card stock and some say they color in the trim themselves before they laminate. We wanted to give you the option. See the preview for how it can be done.

We will continue to add to this as we complete silly sentences for the remaining months of the bundle, so watch my FB page or check your "my purchases" section here at tpt around the start of each month to get the new updates.
