Cut up sentences are a great independent activity while you are teaching guided reading groups or guided writing groups. The activity provides emergent readers and writers with a template that they can use as a guide. This activity can also be used without the template. This activity reinforces one-one matching in reading and also helps with sight word recognition. It also helps children remember sentence structures. It is particularly helpful for students who are starting with no word recognition knowledge. Keep an eye out for the next pack in this series.
* 5 cut up sentences using the language structure "Here comes..."
* 1 x colour the sight words
* 1x write the sight words
The pictures provide students with visual reminders of what they need to do. The image of a book is for the sheet that needs to be stuck into their workbooks and the image of a pair of scissors tells the student that they need to cut it and match it. This made the activity easier particularly for my non-English speakers. I made multiple copies per page to save trees. Just cut along the lines and they are ready to use.
