I designed this packet as a summer-themed center or a file-folder game, but it can just as easily be used a paired work or independent work. The students will manipulate the sentence strips and connecting word cards to form compound sentences and then write them on the recording sheet.
There is also a creative writing page, a creative sentence construction page, and a bonus matching page. This is the only compound sentence file that has an additional page that is a template for writing your own compound sentences to add to the mix. The recording sheet has five spaces but there are 10 sentences that can be created by the strips so the center can be spread out over a few days. Mix and match the pieces.
If you like this product, you might also like my two other compound sentence products. My original is Creating Compound Sentences and I have a Spring version as well.
