No more excuses for sloppy sentences!
This is a complete sentence writing program with 40 printable pages of tasks that are perfect for literacy centers, small group work, or printables for daily morning work.
What's different about this program?
Students don't just build a sentence; they also edit using a simple checklist. When this is done daily students learn how to self-edit their own writing in other projects too!
Why is it engaging?
The hands-on spinner is used to build and choose sentence parts, and the results are silly and fun! Students then write the sentences and use the checklist to self-edit.
Students use the checklist to edit their own:
enough space between words
fixing backwards letters
If they check one that is not correct, simply circle the category and send them off to figure out what is wrong!
After completing the sentence building, printing and edit checklist, students can also use a partner to peer-edit their sentence. This holds them accountable to finish, and increases confidence when they get to be the "expert" fixing up someone else's work.
There are 5 different African animal wheels to choose from, each capable of generating 16 different sentences. Make several copies and use one animal per week!
Two versions are included : full color or white backgrounds to save on color ink costs.
This can be used in many ways: My beginning writers are asked to record just one sentence and illustrate. My gifted students are challenged to try to write every sentence possible on each wheel.
There are 6 differentiated recording sheets for EACH animal, so you can gradually progress in difficulty, or assign a different complexity for several children while using the same wheel.
