Our Easter scrambled sentence mats are designed to give your emergent readers practice with reading simple 5-word sentences.
Print the sentence mats on card stock and laminate. Then, print the square sentence cards and cut them apart. Depending on the needs of your students, you might put each sentence in a baggie and attach it to the mat. Another option is to put the word squares in a pocket on the back of the mat.
We have matched the color of the square sentence cards to the box colors on the mats for easier sorting. At some point your students will likely drop and intermix the sentences, so having the squares in different colors will make it possible for your students to sort the cards themselves if this happens.
To complete the task, students will place the words in the correct order to match the sentence on the mat. The picture is provided to help your students establish meaning.
We have also provided a page for students to record the sentence and draw a matching picture.
While some students might need you to provide only one sentence at a time so they don’t get overwhelmed, others might benefit from being given the choice of picking a picture and sentence they like best.
