TOAS - Think of a Sentence

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Gill Farbrother

The children volunteer 4 or 5 letters of the alphabet. These need to be written where they are easily visible.

The idea is to make a 4 or 5 word sentence - each word beginning with the letters given by the children. 

Eg If the letters "B F A S" were given, a sentence could be "big fish always swim" or "Ben's favourite arm swings".

It is a really good five minute filler. The kids love it and it can be adapted for different age groups.

Simon Lolley made the following suggestion:

This activity works great - but it's a good idea just add a "Together" at the end of its name and you get TOAST! Kids respond better to it and it's great hearing them say to other classes "do you play toast ?".....you don't....oh...BORING!"
