Sentence building can be an engaging activity! With this resource, your students will work on building thematic and sight-word based sentences. After building each sentence they can complete a worksheet to show their understanding. This center will be a staple in your literacy stations!

What are Sentence Solvers?

Sentence Solvers is a unique sentence building resource that helps your students work on several skills at once. Students begin by placing six words in order to create a sentence. Then they can complete one of three worksheets to show their understanding. The worksheets have a variety of skills such as tracing the sentence, drawing a matching picture, describing a picture, or creating their own picture to write about.

Do I have to use the manipulative cards?

No, the worksheets can be used independently from the sentence cards.

Is this resource differentiated?

Yes! There are three worksheet options for each sentence.

Level One: Students cut, glue, trace, and write the sentence. Then they draw a picture to match the sentence.

Level Two: Students cut, glue, and write the sentence. Then they write an additional sentence to match the picture.

Level Three: Students add three details to the picture and color using five colors. Then they trace the sentence and write an additional sentence about their drawing.

How will I know which word cards go together?

There are six word cards for each sentence, along with an optional self-checking card that states the entire sentence. On each card there is a picture. These pictures help keep the correct cards together. For example, there are six word cards with a jumping frog – all of these cards go together to create one sentence. The matching sentence card for self-check also includes the jumping frog picture.

How are these different from other sentence building centers?

Most activities like this simply have students cut and paste a scrambled sentence in the correct order and draw a matching picture. The differentiated worksheets allow you to target specific skills with different students.

Will my students be able to read all the words?

Most of the words used are sight words or decodable words. For many of the sentences, if there is a non-decodable word in the sentence it will be pictured on the sentence card. For example in the sentence “I put pumpkins in my wagon.”, the picture on the word cards is a wagon with pumpkins. The remaining words in the sentence are all sight words. Take a look at the sentences included to see if they are appropriate for your students.

What are the sentences used?

The apples fell off the tree.

Which apple do you like best?

Would you like some apple cider?

We will pick lots of apples.

He has a book about apples.

Would you like some apple pie?

My sister made this silly apple.

I made this pumpkin for you.

I put pumpkins in my wagon.

This looks like a good snack.

Look at their really big pumpkin!

She will count all the seeds.

She wants to find a pumpkin.

The owl sat on the scarecrow.

How many acorns did you find?

Look at all those pretty flowers!

My scarecrow has a red shirt.

We will play in the leaves.

He had to rake the leaves.

We will have a picnic together.

Are these similar to your Draw in the Details worksheets?

The level three worksheet is most like my Draw in the Details series. Students begin by adding details to a picture. Then they use the picture they have created to write a few sentences.

Do you have more centers like this?

Yes, you can see the other Sentence Solvers centers here.
