These sentence builder activities, based on the picture book “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?”, are suitable for younger pupils and special needs pupils who are starting on the road to reading. It teaches left to right orientation, capital letters and full stops. They also focus on colours and animal names.
Pages 1-12 should be laminated and velcro should be stuck in the blank boxes in the table on each page. Pages 13-15 should be laminated, individual boxes should then be cut out and velcro attached to the back. These should then be attached to two blank, laminated sheets – one for the colours, the other for the animals.
The pupil should be given one of the sentence builder sheets and asked to look at the picture and to select the correct colour and animal from the answer sheets. The pupil should stick these in the correct places and read the sentence (saying “I see a ____ _____ looking at me.”.) (I hope all this makes sense!)
