Sentences and Sight words!

Hello All, Today our curriculum (Handwriting without tears get set for school Pre-K) called for sentence building. Each child was supposed to dictate a sentence and we were to count the number of words in the sentence. This is a simple activity that would only take a few minutes had I not put my own spin on it. I decided to turn this into a sentence building, sight word, graphing activity! WHEW! Literacy and numbers in the same lesson, I love double duty lessons!
We started by choosing a picture from a bucket. Each child took a turn and made up a sentence. We counted the number of words after I wrote the sentence on the large graph paper. Once our sentences were finished we identified and found each of our sight words. We circled each sight word and counted how many times we had used each word. I wrote the word and number on the right hand side of the sentence sheet.
Once we finished counting each sight word we made a bar graph to compare how many times we used each word. The children helped me decide which word we used the most, which 2 were tied for least and which 3 were a tie at 2x each. This was so much fun, the class realy enjoyed learning about making a bar graph and I do feel that this activity strengthened their recognition of this weeks sight words.
We also made the hibernating sorting graph from my newest TpT unit. The kids really liked the color pictures and have a good understanding of hibernating, relocating and adapting. This is turning out to be a great week! And now for a funny.........
This is my son Collin, he is 4, he did not want to eat his dinner so instead of fighting it he just decided to go to sleep! This is how he fell asleep and started snoring at our kitchen table. Haha, so cute! Have a blessed rest of your wek! Till next time, Christine
