This packet was created to be used as a teaching tool for my first grade students. The packet can be fastened together and used for the entire grammar unit on sentence writing. The four types of sentences listed in the Common Core State Standards are included (declarative - telling; interrogative - asking; imperative - commanding; and exclamatory - exclaiming).
The journal itself for the students is 11 pages. There is a title page, a page about sentences in general, two pages for each type of sentence introduced, and an assessment page. The first page for each type of sentence that is introduced is to be filled out by the student with teacher instruction (sentences start with a capital letter, end with punctuation). The second page gives the student an opportunity to practice writing his or her own example of each type of sentence taught. There are also starred statements on these pages as a self-assessment for the student.
An answer key is included, as well as, a copy of the entire student journal in black and white. The graphics included are from mycutegraphics.com and are used with permission.
This packet can be used as a great resource for the student to refer to when asked to identify or write various types of sentences. I have created similar packets for other areas of grammar instruction - such as nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc., which will be uploaded soon. I have my students collect each smaller journal together in a writing portfolio, which is great for ongoing assessment and to show writing progress throughout the year! Thanks for checking back to see the other journals! My store name is Fun First Grade.
