Learning Tips

(1)

Sentence Strip Fun: For this activity you will need sentence strips, scissors, and a marker. Write approximately 10 sentences (correctly), one sentence on each strip. After each sentence has been written, read the sentences aloud with your child. Next cut the sentences into individual words. Mix up all of the words and have your child sort the words to create new, coherent (understandable) and complete sentences. The sentences that they create do not have to be the same ones that were originally made, as long as they are complete and coherent.

(2)

Magazine Mania: You will need a variety of magazines, scissors, construction paper, and glue for this activity. Ask your child to use words from the magazines to create fun new sentences. They will need to cut out a variety of words from the magazine pages, arrange the words on the construction paper, glue the words down to create new sentences. Ask them to read the sentence aloud before they glue it to the paper.

(3)

White Board Fun: Use a white board to write an incorrect sentence. Share the sentence with your child. Ask them what is wrong with the sentence. Give them the eraser and marker and ask your child to write a new correct version of the sentence.

(4)

Sentence Puzzle Fun: For this game you will need to print out the puzzle shape pattern from the link below. Next, have you child think of a fun and descriptive sentence they can write. They will need to write one word in each piece of the puzzle. After they have written their sentence (1 word in each piece of the puzzle), they will need to draw a corresponding picture in the rest of the puzzle pieces. After the picture is complete and they have colored it in, your child will then need to cut the puzzle into pieces. Remind them to stay on the lines. Have them make several of these puzzles, keeping each one in a different envelope or bag. Each day, ask them to pick a puzzle and put together the sentence and the picture.

Sentence Changing Challenge: For this activity you will need sentence strips, a marker, and magnetic tape. Each week have a "sentence starter" posted on your refrigerator.

At the end of the week compare and discuss the sentences.
