I’ve been on the hunt recently for a fun way to encourage children to write sentences. I didn’t want my tutoring sessions to always have the child writing on a piece of paper.
These ‘Sentence Building Dominoes’ by Crossbow Education have been a hit. So far I’ve discovered they mean you can build sentences first without the ‘danger’ of writing it and getting it wrong, you can play a game of dominoes, match words and practice your fine motor skills. I was pleased to see they also included basic punctuation tiles and there are specific colours for adjectives, nouns, verbs etc. Only problem I can report was getting children to put them away and move onto the next task!
