With New Year’s just around the corner, many teachers and students are still on holiday vacation. However, 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’s still a great time to plan some fun New Year’s activities for your kids! This super fun New Year’s Cut and Paste Sentence Activity is perfect for working on scissor skills, sight words, and handwriting!

New Year’s Cut and Paste Sentence Activity
We are working hard on our sight words and sentence structure in Kindergarten!
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 too! As a bonus, this activity also strengthens our cutting and handwriting skills! Additionally, we get to color – which is always a fan favorite!
How to Prep
This activity is super simple to prep, which is extra great for that busy first week back from winter break. Simply print, and that’s it!
I especially like this printable because it can be used for any new year!

How to Use the Cut and Paste Sentence Printable
You can use this activity in a small group or whole class. We typically talk about what the clues are for finding the start of a sentence. This is a great opportunity to discuss how to recognize and use capital letters.
If a word is not a sight word, it will have a picture clue of some sort. This indicates to students what the word is.
If it is too hard for kids to unscramble and form the sentence on their own, we will do it as a whole group. I write the sentence on the board largely for the students 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 and independent!
