With New Year’s just around the corner, many teachers and students are still on holiday vacation, but when we return, it will be a brand new year! It won’t feel that different to the kids, as calendar years can still be quite hard for young ones to grasp, but it can be a great time to plan some fun New Year’s activities for kids. Have this fun New Year’s cut and paste sentence printable ready to go for your kids to work on scissor skills, sight words, and handwriting!
Pair it with our New Year’s Writing Centers for tons of writing center fun!
New Year’s Cut and Paste Sentence Printable
We are working hard on our sight words in Kindergarten, and on sentence structure too.
For example, we are practicing reading words from left to right, and learning that sentences start with a capital and end with punctuation.
These cut and paste sentences help us not only read sight words, but form sentences, work on our cutting skills, and on our handwriting skills too.
Plus, we get to color, and trust me, that is always a fan favorite!
This sheet is super simple to prep, which is extra great for that busy first day back. Simply print, and that’s it!
Give each child their own sheet along with scissors, a glue stick, a pencil and crayons.
I especially like this printable because there is no year attached to it – so it works every New Year – no need to reprint!
You can do this in a small group or whole class. We typically talk about what the clues are for finding the start of a sentence (most often a capital letter) and also the last word in a sentence (period, question, or exclamation mark).
If a word is not a sight word, it will have a picture clue of some sort to indicate to the students what the word is and remind them when they see it. In this case, it is a “Happy New Year” sign.
If it is hard for kids to unscramble and form the sentence on their own to make sense, we often will do it as a whole group, and I will write the sentence on the board largely for them to see. This helps them as they are building and gives them a guide.
After they unscramble their sentence and glue it down, it’s time to write the sentence in their best handwriting!
I love that this gives them a chance to work on their printing in a way that makes them feel confident, since they have the guide of the sentence to follow.
