Reading and building sentences

Date: 11th May 2018 @ 2:46pm

We have recently been working on reading and building sentences with pictures and high frequency words.

We read the sentence on the board and found the words/pictures in the tray…

…then we put them in the right order…

…next we brought the sentence over to check…

…and finally we checked our skills against the success criteria!

We did some good looking, good pointing, saying what you see and going back to check. Great job!
