Sentence Building Dominoes
Age: 7 Yrs+
Encourage children to explore the sentence building dominoes, helping them to read any words that are difficult for them.
Point out the different
Remind children that a sentence begins with a capital letter and ends with a punctuation mark and point out those dominoes.
Finally, point out the dominoes with the word endings – s -ed and -ing. Explain that these dominoes may be added to others to make new words, for example, boy/boys and laugh/laughed.
Have children separate the blue noun dominoes from the rest. Review the words on the dominoes, encouraging volunteers to read them aloud. Tell students that these words are all nouns. Choose three dominoes, such as children park and cake from the pile. Explain that a noun is a word that names a person, a place, or a thing. Ask children to classify each of the chosen words. Then write each category – person, place, or thing – on an index card or small bag. Invite children to sort the rest of the dominoes into the appropriate categories.
