Asking AND Telling

Can you use the same words to build completely different sentences?  Yes you can!  Look at these two:

Is the cat brown?
The cat is brown.

I've updated one of my word work stations that I like to use with a few of my firsties who need a little challenge.  

Students will choose a card which has sentences scrambled and then they will try to come up with both an asking and telling sentence.  I have included an anchor chart (for instruction) and I can student instruction cards (for independence).

Each page is in color and black & white.  (I love the colors but let's face it - ink is expensive!!)

You can find this unit HERE at my TPT store.

If you already own this please head over to your purchases and re-download.  As always, I'll send a copy to the first 3 people who comment on this post :)


  1. What a great unit! My kids have a hard time with this skill. Exclamations too! I love that it's color and black and white too! :-)


  2. This is so cute. I love it!! I love color also.


  3. What a great idea.

  4. Love the thought of this word work station!

  5. This is a great idea! My students will think this is so cool - using the same words to make different sentences. Awesome!

  6. What a great exercise! It just went on my wishlist!
