Build a Sentence is a resource that builds speaking, vocabulary and writing skills. A focus image is used to generate vocabulary which in turn is used to build, or create, sentences.
32 focus images, along with 4 levels of differentiated student response pages for each image, allows you to easily customize your lessons. 4 blank student response pages are also included for inserting your own images.
This resource is perfect for small group instruction with beginning and intermediate English language learners. Once students build their English proficiency, this would also make an engaging and effective independent literacy center.
My ESL students love this activity! They are challenged with building a 3 word sentence, a 4 word sentence, a 5 word sentence, and so on. The supports provided within this resource allows for ALL students to find success in building their English language skills.
Detailed instructions on how to use this resources is included. Check out the preview for a closer look!
*This resource would also be effective for students in the primary grades learning to write.
