Ms. Furlong’s Title I kindergarten students at Corpus Christi read some aa level books by Deanna Jump and Deedee Wills. The books had a lot of repetitive language and sight words. After we finished each book, students were given a mixed up sentence based on what they read.
First students worked to put the sentence in the right order before gluing it into their journal. Then they reread the sentence several times while pointing to each word. Using the sentence as a model, students came up with their own ending to the sentence. Students wrote their new kindergarten sentences with spaces between each word. Kindergartners were encouraged to stretch out the sounds of the new word as they wrote it.
