Sentence builder activities are great for infant pupils as well as pupils with learning difficulties or special educational needs. They help to develop vocabulary, sentence structure and left to right orientation. This resource is based on the picture book “Dear Zoo” by Rod Campbell. It features sentences based on the picture book.
All pages should be laminated; the words on pages 10-12 should then be cut out. Velcro should be attached to the spaces on pages 1-8 and on the rear of all the words on pages 10-12. The words are colour coded to assist pupils to identify which words go with which page. Alternatively, the teacher could present the pupil with a particular sheet with the words already attached, but jumbled up. A follow-up activity could be to write the sentences into a copy.
