Every year, during the first week of March, we have fun celebrating the zany books of Dr. Seuss.
Over the years we have done lots of Seuss activities & crafts that have been influenced by his characters and stories. We especially love celebrating our own version of Wacky Wednesday. (Ice cream for breakfast? Yes, please!)
This year we are adding to the festivities with this simple Wacky Wednesday activity.
Looking for more sentence activities? Check out this early sentence structure activity using Legos.
If you are trying to teach your child to add more details to their writing, and expand those sentences, then this silly sentence printable is perfect!
No need to wait for March, either.
While we are using it for Dr. Seuss Week, the printable is actually made to use completely on its own.
Wacky Wednesday Activity
- Wacky Sentences Printable
- 1 Game Die
This sentence writing activity is super easy.
Have your child roll the game die to determine what word they will use in their sentence.
They will roll the die 5 times for each sentence.
The first roll will be for an adjective. They will also roll for a noun, verb, adverb, and prepositional phrase.
There is a second page to the printable that is perfect for writing down the wacky sentences your child creates.
As they roll for each sentence part, your child will begin to recognize words that are adjectives, nouns, verbs, adverbs, and prepositional phrases.
Once they have created several sentences, there is a space to draw their very favorite.
Will a fuzzy dragon burp gracefully under the stairs? Or hungry mice jump slowly over the car?
No matter what they roll, this printable silly sentence activity will have them laughing!
This Wacky Wednesday activity is perfect for teaching kids to expand sentences and learn about parts of speech, too.
