Beginning Sentence Scramble, Zebra Print Canvas Bins

Hey everyone! Gosh, it is Friday! Sorry, I haven't posted very regularly the last couple of weeks. You know how it is when school starts . . .busy, busy, busy! We did a fun activity yesterday to introduce the kids to working in a small group. We began learning about the concept that a capital letter always begins a sentence, and there is always punctuation at the end. After practicing this, I gave each group a very simple, 3 word sentence that I had pre-programmed and cut up. Then they had to solve the mystery of what the first word was, the middle word and the last word by looking for the clues of capital letter and punctuation. They then glued them on strips of construction paper and we read all of the sentences as a class. Here is a picture of the finished project.

Also, if you are decorating your room in black/white or zebra print, Big Lots has some super cute canvas bins in a black/white zebra print. . .

Have a great day!
