Aren’t words “yummy”? They make sentences and stories so much more delicious. Invite each child to think of a “yummy” word that they love. It can be a food, color, sport, activity. Write each child’s name on a sentence strip. Write their “yummy” word on the reverse. Encourage students to think of sentences using their “yummy” word.
When it’s time to dismiss children, hold up the “yummy” words. If they recognize their word they can get in line.
*Place yummy words in the writing center.
*Make a word wall with the children’s names. Add yummy words as they request under their name.
