These seasonal sentence builder activities, featuring Santa hats, presents and trees, are suitable for younger pupils and special needs pupils who are starting on the road to reading. It teaches left to right orientation, sight vocabulary, capital letters and full stops. They are also reinforcing numbers 1-3 and the colours red, green and blue.
Pages 1-9 should be laminated and velcro should be stuck in the blank boxes in the bottom table on each page. Pages 10-12 should be laminated, individual boxes should then be cut out and velcro attached to the back. These should then be attached to another blank, laminated sheet.
The pupil should be given one of the sentence builder sheets and asked to look at the picture and to select the correct answer boxes. The pupil should stick these in the correct places and read the sentence (saying “I see three red hats”. etc.) (I hope all this makes sense!)
