The focus of our summer program is to "Jump Start" literacy skills for our kindergartners going into first grade. Due to the fact that our class sizes hit a record high this year, too many of our students' individual needs are not being met. We wanted to create a way to support our youngest students to hopefully enhance the beginning of their educational careers.
My group of kiddos have mastered their letter names and sounds. Therefore, I will be focusing on sight words and basic sentences. This is where my Monday Made It comes in...Sandwich Sentences! I found these incredible coasters at Dollar Tree a few weeks back, and knew I had to pick them up; I just wasn't sure how I was going to use them at first.
|I spent a good amount of time trying to figure out sentence options.|
|This is the scaffolded set, which provides my struggling students with sentence options.|
|I wrote the different parts of speech, on the back of each sandwich piece, |
that students will have to use in order to make a complete "sandwich."
I am in love with the final product and can't wait to use this activity with my summer school kiddos!
Also, this activity has allowed me to reuse a couple of my IPSY envelopes I just can't part with.
