Read it and pass it along!

I have a set of Alphabet flashcards I got from the States with a sentence printed on the bottom. So at the top it has Aa and the bottom it says, “apples are sweet” for example. Each letter has a different sentence starting with that letter of the alphabet.

In my Elementary school classes, the kids love to read the flashcards. They are nice, short sentences for warm up or practice. Today in a class I passed out one card to each of the five students and asked them to read it. Then after they all took turns reading, I asked them to pass their card to the person on their left, with a big “Go!” from me. Then they took turns reading. We kept doing this until everyone had their original card. It was a really easy thing to do, but it added a bit of fun to a normal reading exercise. You could do this with any flashcard, or even a sentence or word written on a piece of paper. Give it a try !
