  • I am going to laminate them, stick a velcro tab on the back of each and then the children can arrange a silly sentence on a large material covered board. I will use it as part of guided reading activities. x

  • I will put the cards at different locations in the playground. The children can work in pairs to find cards, put them in the correct order and write silly sentences. They can write them on white boards. Hope it works. Thanks for saving me a Sunday evening's work.

  • This is good but would be good to know that it is no different from the one in KS1 area - I would have liked a simlified version as my early level readers would struggle with this.
