PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you download this activity, please leave feedback.

It really makes my day :-)

This is a fun Grammar activity for grade 1. My class needs specific training in grammar concepts and I find that they love activities which help them practice these skills. This activity in particular they LOVED!!
It includes:
Teacher Instructions.
Personality Cards
Activity cards corresponding to the name cards.
2 Questioning cards for the chosen policemen.
8 response cards for every student.
2 response writing cards for the policemen.
Finally EXTRA PRACTICE sentence construction cut and paste activity.
It also focuses on two outcomes in the common standards:
Reading: Recognize structure of a sentence.
Writing: respond using the verb to be in the past tense. Able to use and recognize adjectives in a sentence.

ENjoy!! Note that courtesy goes out to www.scrappindoodles.com for the graphics! and www.kevinandamanda.com for the fonts.

Any questions please e-mail at yara.haba@gmail.com.

Would love the feedback! Will have a look at your resources as well, I am always in need of new respources for my Classes! :D

Cheers
Yara

Product Questions & Answers

On  September 20, 2012Scipi (TpT Seller) asked:
I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done!

Here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products. Make sure each product has a cover page for each of your products which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers even if the item is only one page in length. Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Here is how you do that. Use the insert and go to the right. You should see symbols there. Insert the copyright symbol, your name and date. It should look something like this: © V. Rauch (Scipi), 2011 Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also number your pages.

It is important that we see what others are doing; so, feel free to look at any or all of my freebies listed below to gather some ideas. If you care to, a rating or any feedback you might have would be great.

The best of luck as you sell on TPT!

On  September 20, 2012Yara Sea of Knowledge answered:
Thank you Scipi! I really needed those tips. I will review my items and place copyright symbols on them and redo the worksheet that I have with a title page. (I had created that a long time ago) I thought referencing towards the end of the document is enough. But I guess you're right, people can pinch them easily.
Loved your math activities, I need a lot of those in my classes. My students absolutely hate mundane repetative math drills and tasks.

Look forward to seeing more of your products, they are so engaging and fresh!
