This Zoo Themed Sentence Builder Book, "What Is Monkey Doing?" focuses on identifying action words, building sentences, and sentence comprehension.
In a small group, the teacher or therapist reads the story as students follow along and match the correct action to each page.
"What is Monkey doing? What can it be?
He's.... __________ (getting a banana)
as we can plainly see"
After the students have worked through the book, students can practice building sentences with the sentence builder strips. Students will put three pictures together to form a complete sentence. (See photos for details)
There is also a sentence comprehension activity included. Students read the sentence (or a teacher reads it to them) and choose the picture that best illustrates the sentence.
Students working independently can complete any or all of the activities at a literacy center.
