PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This pack includes four circus themed mini lesson ideas for combining sentences: joining similar ideas, writing compound sentences, writing complex sentences and using an introductory phrase. Each strategy includes at least 4 task cards. I used these task cards in my classroom by displaying the strategy poster on my SMARTboard and then asking students to use the task cards to practice the strategy. When students completed the cards, they were instructed to go to their writing notebook and find three pairs of sentences to combine with the strategy of the day. On the fifth day, students used the mixed review task cards to apply all of the strategies taught.

I've also included an answer key, a recording sheet, mini strategy cards and 12 mixed review task cards. Combining sentences is specifically addressed in the Common Core Standards for fifth grade in standard L.5.3a. You could easily adapt these cards for center practice or homework as well.
