This book consists of 20 highly engaging picture prompts that invite students to write sentences that tell who, what, and where.
A student’s ability to effortlessly write both simple and more linguistically complex sentences is decidedly important. Many students are adept at the writing of simple sentences but complex sentences prove more challenging.
WIDA (World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment) defines complex sentences as sentences with more than a subject, verb, and possible object. The “where” in this activity is the element that will move students’ sentences from simple to complex since students will have to use a prepositional phrase to describe the “where.”
Additionally, the picture prompts included were intentionally selected to provide real world contexts for kids to acquire new vocabulary, build background knowledge, apply a consistent structure to responses (both verbal and written), and develop the strong writing skills integral for future success.
Any and all feedback is sincerely welcomed and appreciated!
