This unique product provides a pyramid style template for building an interesting sentence one word at a time using"parts of speech" vocabulary. (noun, article noun, article adjective noun,etc.-see preview) This particular template is a giant orange leaf with a fall colored box with tiny leaves border to highlight the final sentence, so looks really pretty as a bulletin board to display your students' budding writing skills.
The packet includes several "versions" so you can pick and choose depending on the independent writing level of your students. I provided shapes with appropriate articles, nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and prepositional phrases you may use if your students need this kind of structure/support. Blank cut/glue shapes are also provided if your students are ready to generate their own words or if you want to brainstorm a class list with custom words and have the students write them in the boxes. Also provided is a black/white version if you do not want a finished product display, but are more interested in daily lesson material.
I had lots of fun creating this product, and hope you find it useful. Please provide feedback if you choose to purchase this product. I truly value the information I receive from my colleagues as I continue to design instructional materials! Thanks so much!
