These sentences focus on color words (red, green, brown, blue, purple, yellow, orange, black, and white) and the sight words “the” and “is.”
Creating or unscrambling each sentence helps the students focus on looking for the capital letter for the first word in the sentence and looking for the ending punctuation mark for the last word. The words that go together to make a complete sentence all have the same picture on the card. Also, each sentence has the words written in matching colors so that students can sort the cards by color/picture, and then put the sentence in the correct order by finding the capital letter and ending punctuation mark.
After the students correctly unscramble each sentence, they can write the complete sentence on the recording sheet provided. This provides evidence for the teacher showing what sentences the students unscramble in the center.
To Use: Print each page on cardstock, laminate for durability, cut apart, and put the cards in a Ziploc bag and put in a literacy center with a pocket chart for students to unscramble. I hope your students enjoy this pocket chart activity.
***If you do not have a pocket chart, the sentences can still be used simply by placing the words on the floor or table.

I am a kindergarten teacher with 22 years of teaching experience! I received my Doctor of Education degree in Teacher Leadership from Walden University in June 2010. The title of my doctoral study is "Writing Conferences in Kindergarten: Using Feedback to Enhance Student Writing." My passion is teaching writing to my students and providing feedback for their writing experiences. I love teaching kindergarten. It is amazing to see students enter the classroom not even knowing how to hold a pencil and watching them become readers and writers by the end of the year. I love teaching in small groups and rotating student groups with literacy centers and math centers.
