Product Description
Build a Better Sentence! Cards for Upper Elementary & Middle {Common Core}

Build a better sentence! Here's how:

1. Write a subject and verb.
2. Add at least 2 parts.
3. Move one part to the front of the subject and verb and place a comma after it.

The instruction card provides examples for the above procedure. Then, there is a WHEN part card, WHERE part card, WHY part card, and HOW part card. Each card gives ides and examples for adding each part to a sentence.

When my students turn in vocabulary sentences, they KNOW they must have a minimum of 2 "parts." This is a much better method than giving a minimum word count for a sentence as it makes the students expand the sentence instead of just adding words to it.

Over time, they will develop the habit of writing better sentences.

This is my method of teaching Common Core Standard L.3. It also addresses:
L.2
L.5
W.4
W.5
