My kids love to read and hate to read at the same time. It’s kind of odd, really. They love when I read to them and when they are engrossed in a book. But sometimes they just don’t want to read. I typically lay off because they will not learn to love reading by me forcing them. But I do try to find ways to get them excited about reading. Silly sentences have done that for us. And I think the Roll a Space Sentence printable will also be a hit.
It’s time for another super fun week full of printables on one theme – and this time it’s SPACE. Yes, a full and amazing week of Space printables. Shoot me an e-mail (erin at royalbaloo.com) if you have a specific request and I will do my best to get it done.
Otherwise – make sure you’re on the newsletter list so you will receive the counting and addition mats in the Space newsletter!
These Roll a Sentence printables have become such a hit around here. My kids are actually requesting more of them. They never ask me for printables. Baloo even helped me pick some of the phrases for this one!
How to Set Up the Roll a Space Sentence printable
I always print these on regular paper because we tend to use them for just a day or two. As long as they aren’t going wild with the dice, they will stand up to play for a few days.
It is entirely possible to make the dice with cardstock though and they will withstand more use.
I’ve also included a larger set to be used with these large photo pocket dice. They are a bit simpler to make and will take a lot more abuse from the kids.
To make the dice:
Cut out on the outer lines.
Fold on all the lines
The tabs should be on the inside and used to strengthen the edges
Tape or glue the tabs to the sides (or just tape the outside)
How to Use the Roll a Space Sentence printable:
Just roll and go, really!
Roll each dice in turn (or all at once for a bit more excitement). Match the dice by color with the squares on the sheet and you should have a sentence. Hopefully a silly sentence.
This was one of my favorites. I’m not entirely sure my kids understood the E.T. reference.
