Fairy Tale Sentence Building on the Light Table {Light & Reflections Series}

The theme for this month's Light & Reflections series is fairy tales. I decided to do a sentence building literacy activity for the light table to build off of J's hyperlexia and to encourage sentence formation with him, which is something he struggles with verbally. It's a quick and simple light table activity that comes with a free printable.

Fairy Tale Literacy Light Table Activity for Kids

Often you find phrases like "Once upon a time" and "happily ever after" in fairy tales, so I picked four common fairy tale phrases for this activity. J has actually been saying "once upon a time" a lot lately, in an attempt to tell short stories verbally. They usually go something like this, "Once upon a time there was a box. The end." Most of the time, they don't even make sense, but he giggles incessantly. So this light table activity definitely played off of his current interests.

Here's what you'll need for this light table activity:

  • Fairy Tale Sentence Strips Printable (link to download below) - Contains four sentences and individual words to build the sentence.
  • Vellum (paper or a clear transparency would work as well too)
Just print the printable onto your vellum (or paper or clear transparency), cut, and play!
