Each sentence will have one of each colored card. Glue them onto a piece of notebook paper with their names on top. 
3. Flash Cards -Work (quietly) on flash cards for 10-15 mins. If they don’t have supplies they can use some of the flash cards on my desk. They can cut them small (like 3 or 4 cards per piece) to get more words per card. They should use page 51 and they need to do all of the words.
