This categories and sentence frames products is ideal for ESL and speech therapy students and teachers. IF I HAD TO BE A.... sentence prompts are based on 90 topics/people/things where students can brainstorm lists within a given category, make a choice about what they would want to be, brainstorm describing words, support their choice, and create an illustration. In addition to the 90 printables with one category per page, there are 13 pages of sentence frames that can be used for class discussions or brainstorming (7 sentence frames per page).
There is ONLY ONE ANSWER KEY for the printables which is included solely to illustrate the format for answers. ALL ANSWERS WILL VARY WIDELY!
The goal is for students to produce a list of items in a category and then decide which one they would choose to be. Many of the categories have a wide range of acceptable answers, while others may only have a few (depending on the student’s language development, the category, the grade level, etc.). Please see the SAMPLE on the thumbnail.
This product can be used with an entire class, small groups, as a warm-up, early finisher, homework, or in an interactive notebook.
Pages 95-107: There are seven sentence frames per page. I print these pages on card stock and then cut on the dotted lines. You can put them in some type of container or you can punch a hole on the left side of each card and use a ring to hold them together. These sentence frames are perfect for moments when you have one or two minutes of down time. It doesn’t require students to brainstorm a list of items in a given category, but you can do that as part of the discussion if desired.
PLEASE NOTE: While this product is tagged for 1st-4th grade, older students who are working on language development would surely benefit from this product as well.
