I know, it sounds weird but stay with me. We all know that sentences are complete thoughts with capital letters and punctuation. But what is common sense to us, is not always common sense to our kiddos, so with any grammar lesson, learning what a sentence is and isn't is important. Now for my idea.
I created a Valentines Box and on each Valentine card is a sentence or a non sentence. Have your child pick a card and read the sentence, have him or her tell you if it is a sentence or not, if it is a sentence put it in the Valentines Box! So not only are they learning what a sentence is and isn't, they are practicing their reading!
How to make the box:
1 shoe box
things to decorate the box
1. cut a slit in the lid and wrap the box with the wrapping paper.
2. decorate the box (you can or have your kiddo do it)
3. write each sentence on a notecard
4. decorate the other side of the notecard
