This set of cut-and-glue sentences includes over 100 Dolch sight words! They are arranged into 66 sentences with 5 or 6 words each. Each sentence has a fun pirate theme! The sentences are great for teaching not only sight words, but also grammar and punctuation!
In my classroom, we use these as a whole group activity. First, I cut each page of sentences into strips. I give each student one sentence to cut out and one page of construction paper for all 3 sentences. After the student finishes with the first sentence, he/she comes to my desk, reads the sentence, and gets the next sentence to cut out.
These work well as a whole group activity, for small groups, as center activities, and for early finishers.
(NOTE: The clip art from Whimsy Clips includes 2 bones, but there are no skulls or swords in this set.)
