UPDATE: I have uploaded PackII of ‘Write the secret sentence’ on my blog. Do check it.
Now that our children are pretty familiar with beginning sounds and blending has been introduced, let’s try this ‘write a sentence’ activity with them.
One sure thing that I have learned over the years about children is that they love cracking the code!
Tell them that there is a treasure hunt or a secret word to find and they are all up and raring to go.
This particular set is all about that. It will help our little learners in perfecting their beginning sounds. It will also enable them to learn new sight words. These worksheets are all about CVC words so they will get some reading practice. This pack will make them understand and form simple sentences.
In the above worksheet, children have to write the beginning sounds of the pictures in the blocks and see how the secret sentence is revealed.
Our little preschoolers who are not comfortable writing can try stamping the letters or can use plastic or wooden letters in the blocks. Imagine how much fun it will be for our little ones. I love this wooden stamp set by Melissa and Doug. The stamps which include both uppercase and lowercase letters are easy to hold and quite sturdy. I have had this set for five years. I did have the ink stamp pad a few times though.
These worksheets are a good way of introducing kindergarteners to sentences. Write the beginning sounds of the pictures and form a sentence. Then write that sentence following basic punctuation. Sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a period (full stop).
