My other sentence formulation packets have been a hit, and I love them as well! Here is another that can be used year round with it’s fun monster theme!
The packet is obviously intended for kids who need help creating sentences… but it can also be used to open dialogue about perspective taking and silly vs realistic sentences using the Reflect! cards (see below).
Mix and match to create mighty monster sentences. Once a student has a complete sentence formed, you can experiment with word order. “Can you put the ‘when’ card last?” “What about the ‘who’ card?”
The last sheet can be used as homework, or for your students to practice creating their own sentences!
Additionally, in this packet, I’ve included Reflect! question cards (8). These encourage your students to reflect on if their sentences make sense, if they are realistic, how the monster in the story might feel, to create a narrative based on their sentences, and more!
20 ‘who’ cards with monsters (10 have silly names and 10 are left blank for your students to come up with their own names!)
28 ‘what’ cards with actions on them (ex: burped)
24 ‘where’ cards with places on them (ex: in a tree house)
8 ‘when’ cards (ex: yesterday)
24 ‘why’ cards (ex: because that’s what monsters do)
1 homework page/worksheet
8 Reflect! cards (ex: Tell a story about the monster in your sentence.)
Check out a whole bunch of example pictures below:

I try to mix up the order of the various parts of the sentence in each packet. Some are in different tenses too!
