How to Assemble
Print the sentence mats on card stock and laminate them.
Print the square sentence cards and cut them apart.
Put each sentence in a baggie and attach it to the mat. (Another organizational option is to put the word squares in an envelope and attach it to 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.
To do this activity, students will place the word cards in the correct order to match the sentence on the mat. The picture is provided to help your students establish meaning.
To differentiate this activity and make it a little more difficult, you could cover the sentence under the picture with painter’s tape.
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.
