Thank you for your interest in the Animals Interesting Sentence Tic-Tac-Toe Games. Interesting sentences elevate our student's writing and are an integral part of their growth as writers. This fun and engaging activity will encourage their use of interesting sentences.

- Tic-Tac-Toe Pawprint Game Pieces (in lieu of x's and o's)
- Game Instructions
Tic-tac-toe is a simple game that your students will most likely already be familiar with. However, I have added a few twists that turn into an exercise that is perfect to work on a language and writing skill.
Before each student places their pawprint marker onto the game board, they must say an interesting sentence about the animal they are about to cover up. The sentence MUST be interesting.
For example, the student is about to cover up a squirrel. An interesting sentence could be: "The sneaky squirrel grabbed a nut from the limb of that tall tree."
Though the exercise is simple, it makes your students really think about the sentence they are constructing. It is a skill that will hopefully carry over into their writing. Interesting sentences are a crucial aspect of being an engaging writer!
I have included a total of 30 different tic-tac-toe cards in this set. With such a large number of cards, you can utilize this activity during center time or whole group instruction. Your students can rotate the cards so that the animals they are creating sentences about stay new and fresh.
Thank you again for your purchase. I hope you enjoy the Animals Interesting Sentence Tic-Tac-Toe Games as much as I do.
