Predictable Charts: Day 4: Be what you are!

Day 3 is a super fun day! It has a tiny bit of prep to it. Literally, very tiny! Simply pick a sentence from your children's list (or you could do more than one sentence if you have time). Write each word on a seperate sheet of paper.

I handed out my sheets to different students so that they were all mixed up. Then the students stood in a line. The remaining kids on the rug had to read and tell the kids where they had to move (done with my questioning and direction). They were ALL engaged and had fun! It was really funny when they noticed that the period had it's very own sheet. There was lots of "what's that dot for? "why do you have a dot?"... cute and informative as to who knows what a period is and where it goes!

Here's what it looks like when you are done:


Then I had the whole class read the sentence together and figure our whose sentence that it was. They had a blast!
