Here in North Carolina, we seem to be taking a break from winter, as our high temperatures have been 65-70 the past few days! North Carolina is like that, however. One week it is 70 degrees, and the next week our pipes are trying to freeze. Go figure.

Winter Sentence Picture Match
In this Winter Sentence Picture Match packet, you will find 6 sentences that coordinate to 6 pictures. Lay the chosen number of pictures on the table, and make sure you have the coordinating sentences available.
First, have your child look at each picture and maybe say a couple of things that come to mind about what he sees. “I see a boy reading in a chair. He looks warm under his blanket.” or “I see a pair of mittens.”
Now your child can choose one of the sentences to read, and then he can determine the picture with which it goes.
A Few Ideas for Use in Your Homeschool
I love Sentence Picture Match packets, since they are so adaptable to the ability of your young reader.
It took my youngest girl a long time to develop much reading stamina. Reading was terribly difficult for her, so I could only push her so far each day. Reading was hard and exhausting, and I needed to modify her activities.
In the homemade, Sharpie sentence strips I made for her in those early reading days, I would only have her read 2-3 sentences at the time and match them to the correct object or picture I was using.
Slowly but surely she could increase the amount of sentences she could read in one sitting.
If your child doesn’t have much reading stamina at this point in time, simply read 1-3 sentences and call it a day. However, if he can read them fairly easily, choose to read 6 each day, mixing them up as you go.
You could also use the sentence strips to have a mini phonics lesson.
What is the vowel team in this word? What letters make the ending sound? Point to the compound word in the sentence. How many syllables does this word have?
Lastly, you could also use the sentence strips as copywork. It is always a good time to talk about grammar and parts of speech and punctuation! These sentences are just another opportunity to remind your children of grammar concepts.
However you choose to use this packet, I hope you and your young readers enjoy!
