Who would have thought a worksheet could take me right back to grade 1? Just as Marcel’s brief encounter with a crumbling Madeline cookie, so it was with me this past week after coming across the new Building Basic Sentences worksheets from Super Teacher Worksheets.
In these worksheets, young students can cut out a selection of 4 or 5 words and glue them on the page in the correct order to form a basic sentence. They then rewrite the sentences and draw a picture underneath of what the sentence means (exactly the kind of thing I did in my French immersion elementary school back in the 80s).
The site just recently added a few dozen of these worksheets including two free samples which you can download from the site directly or by clicking on the images below.
As always, the worksheets are beautifully made, easy to use, and perfect for the classroom. And if Tim Weibel, the creator of Super Teacher Worksheets, or anyone else from the site happens to be reading this then I have some unsolicited advice. Get your programming people to design a worksheet generator for this activity. It’s exactly the kind of thing a lot of teachers like me would kill to have.
