Video: Sentence Building in Action with Letters Alive!

Today's sentence building practice is brought to you by... Letters Alive!  There are so many ways you can use this kit and I am still discovering them!  We have been working on capitalization and punctuation as well as sentence order so I thought I would spice up our lesson a little by adding in a some Augmented Reality.  Here's a 2 minute video of part of my lesson.


I love how my kids realized that the sentence could be a telling sentence OR an asking sentence.  I totally meant to do that.  ;)

This is the Fab 5 we use to check our work with (mentioned in the above video):

Also, here's a video from the beginning of the year that explains a little more about the kit.  By the way, these kits are available through a Donors Choose project now too!


I love having this available to enhance my lessons.  Last week I had a few visitors stop by for a tour and I happened to be using my kit when they walked in.  They were amazed by the Augmented Reality and how well my kids responded to it!

There are many more videos of Letters Alive in action that you can view {here} on the Alive Studios website.  Make sure to explore their site for more information!
