PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun activity to review 6 rules about complete sentences and is most appropriate for 1st and 2nd grade classes.

The rules featured in this activity are:
- Sentences tell a complete thought.
- Sentences start with a capital letter.
- Sentences end with an end mark.
- Sentences have spaces between words.
- Words are in an order that makes sense.
- Verbs have an s at the end when the sentence is about 1 person.

Each group receives a sentence card with a sad face on it because the sentence is not a good sentence. Groups must identify what is wrong with the sentence and go to one of the 6 sentence rule signs posted around the room. At each sign, the students will find a baggie with two sentence options to choose from (one is correct, and the other is another bad option). There is a circle on these cards for the teacher or students to write in a smiley face or a sad face. This is just how I did the activity, but you could modify. For example, you may use only 4 of the rules instead of 6. You could also make this a center or an interactive bulletin board.

Included:
- instructions for set-up
- suggestions and tips for the activity
- 6 sentence rule signs with graphics and sentence examples and non-examples
- 2 sets of sentence cards (Set A is easier; Set B is slightly more advanced). These cards are labeled with a number to go with a rule sign and a letter to go with a set of cards.
- a cheat sheet for set-up, which lists which cards go with each sign
- a worksheet for students to record their sentences (the wrong one and the fixed one) and to circle what was wrong with their sentence

This is a simple but fun activity. I hope your students enjoy it and you find it easy to use! You might want to use the 6 sentence rule signs as anchor charts in your classroom after this activity!
