Product Description
Students use these varied sentence beginners to compose imaginative sentences that teach them to begin sentences with gerund phrases, infinitive phrases, participial phrases, adverbs, adjectives, and dependent clauses. I usually introduce these varieties to students. Then I take them outside to stand in a big circle, which consists of arcs of their teams of four. I run several five-minute rounds for each of the categories, in which individual students from the various teams can run to the center of the circle, grab the eraser off the ground, and complete a sentence in the category I named at the beginning of the round (such as "gerund"). They may choose from any of the stems or offer one of their own. At the end of each round, I award a point for the most creative and best crafted sentence from that round. I double the points if the stem used was one the students made up themselves. The winning team wins gift cards to the local Jamba Juice store.
