Building Sentences and Blends

I recently was able to finish up two new activities that I started a while ago and never seemed to find the time to complete. 

The first is Building Sentences
Now that my kindergartners are writing more and more, I wanted to give them lots of practice writing complete sentences and following all the proper conventions.
Building Sentences contains 21 different word lists that can be used to make lots of different sentences. The words used are all the popular sight words and decodable words. I used almost all the Dolch Pre-Primer and Primer words and the words from the 2014 Kindergarten Journeys reading program. The activities are very easy to prepare and I numbered and color coded everything to make it easy to keep organized. I even color coded the different parts of speech.
I printed and laminated mine and store them in Ziploc Baggies. It's easy for me to pull out a pack and place it in my Word Work station. You can keep the same list at the station for one week or more. Whatever works best for your class. I keep a lot of my stations out for more than one week.
There are a few recording sheets too, to check for mastery.
You can check it out here

I also finished up Let's Build Words With Blends
Building words is such a fun way to practice decoding and blending. My original pack did not have words with blends. 
You can find it here. It's on sale for a few more hours!
Next up...building words with vowel patterns!

Be sure to stop by my blog tomorrow! I am so excited to tell you all about my review of this...
