Let’s go sliding! Build vocabulary. Learn parts of speech. Practice spelling words. Create colorful sliders and play with words!
Try this fun way to build your vocabulary. Or practice spelling words. You’ll even learn parts of speech.
Design your slider. Sliders can be any shape you can imagine---maybe a dinosaur, a train, or a trampoline. Sketch ideas for your slider with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. To make your slider long enough for a complete sentence, you may need two or more pieces of paper. Use a Crayola Glue Stick to hold the pieces together.
Color your slider with Crayola Washable Markers.
Write a sentence. Using a Crayola Fine Tip Marker, write a sentence on your slider with space for at least one missing word (noun, verb, adjective, adverb, or prepositional phrase).
Draw two lines, one above the other, where the missing word goes. Fold the paper gently, perpendicular to the lines, and cut slits with Crayola Scissors.
Accent your slider with Crayola Glitter Glue. Air-dry the glue.
Make word strips. Cut long strips of paper slightly narrower than your slider’s slits.
Divide word strips into sections with different background colors. Write one word in each section to complete the sentence you wrote on your slider.
Insert the word strips from the back of the slider through the slits. You’re ready to go sliding!
