Product Description

Guide your students on their path to becoming excellent expository writers!

Together with Dr. Judith Hochman’s wonderful Writing Revolution System, this product is designed to help students fully understand the purpose and structure of a sentence and develop the ability to compose complex sentences that reflect extended thinking.

This product includes oral examples for teacher modeling as well as in-class and homework activities for the following concepts and goals of lessons 1.1-1.5:

Lesson 1.1: Students often use sentence fragments or incomplete sentences in spoken language, and they may continue to use them as they learn to write. However, writing requires far more precision than speaking. Students need to be able to spot fragments in oral or written activities before attempting to correct fragments in their own work. Students may need lots of practice distinguishing fragments from complete sentences.

Practicing sentence-defining and sentence-ordering activities:

- Helps students understand the concept of a complete sentence and discern

sentence boundaries

- Helps students understand correct word order

- Provides practice with capitalization, punctuation, and using new spelling and

vocabulary words

- Serves as a comprehension check

- Helps students understand the meanings of subjects, predicates, and

prepositional phrases

- Encourages careful reading

Instructional Goals:

1. Distinguish between a fragment and a complete sentence

2. Convert a fragment into a complete sentence

Lesson 1.2: Students enjoy rearranging jumbled sequences of words into correctly punctuated and capitalized sentences. At the same time, they’re developing and honing their grasp of the concept of a complete sentence, learning correct word order, and reinforcing their knowledge of the rules of punctuation and capitalization.

Practicing sentence-defining and sentence-ordering activities:

- Helps students understand the concept of a complete sentence and discern sentence boundaries

- Helps students understand correct word order

- Provides practice with capitalization, punctuation, and using new spelling and vocabulary words

- Serves as a comprehension check

- Helps students understand the meanings of subjects, predicates, and prepositional phrases

- Encourages careful reading

Instructional Goals:

1. Rearrange jumbled sequences of words into correctly punctuated sentences

2. Write a statement with a capital letter at the beginning and a period at the end

3. Write a question with a capital letter at the beginning and a question mark at the end

4. Write an exclamation with a capital letter at the beginning and an exclamation point at the end

Lesson 1.3: A solid understanding of the four types of sentences is useful for students writing topic sentences and concluding sentences for paragraphs. The four types are:

1. Statement (Declarative)

2. Exclamation (Exclamatory)

3. Question (Interrogative)

4. Command (Imperative)

Practicing sentence-type activities does the following:

- Enables students to vary sentence structure

- Provides one way to improve topic and concluding sentences in a paragraph

- Introduces students to forming questions

- Helps students learn correct punctuation

Instructional Goals:

1. Distinguish among statements, questions, exclamations, and commands

2. Add correct punctuation to each of the sentence types

Lesson 1.4: It’s as important for students to learn how to generate questions as it is for them to learn how to answer them. When students formulate questions, they’re developing higher-level cognitive functions while at the same time focusing on the main idea of the content that provides the basis of their question. To teach this skill, show students a picture and ask them what questions the picture suggests.

Practicing question activities does the following:

- Encourages the students to think about the important features in text

- Encourages close reading

- Helps students to focus on the key elements of questions

- Gives students practice in understanding and using expository terms

- Helps students anticipate what questions they may be asked

Instructional Goals:

1. Given a picture or text, write one or two questions about it

2. Write a question from a given response

Lesson 1.5: Students who understand how to rearrange the phrases or clauses within a sentence while retaining the sentence’s meaning are capable of writing more linguistically complex sentences.

Practicing activities with phrases and clauses does the following:

- Develops the ability to craft linguistically complex sentences that use written

rather than oral language conventions

- Develops the ability to write extended responses

- Enables students to vary sentence types

- Provides a way to develop topic and concluding sentences

- Improves reading comprehension by familiarizing students with more complex

syntax and sentence structure

Instructional Goals:

1. Rearrange the phrases and clauses within a given sentence

2. Produce more linguistically complex sentences

**Since the concepts and goals of this lesson (1.5) are challenging, it is recommended that the work be completed together in class with teacher guidance.

Each product in this bundle is also sold individually at my store.

Please Note: This product has been designed as a complementary activity to be used along with the full Writing Revolution Hochman Method. Before printing, teachers can choose from two different types of handwriting lines.

Want more products like this one based on a specific unit or theme (seasons, neighborhood, etc.)? Please leave me a comment in the “Q&A” section and I can tailor a product to meet your needs.

All of my products are purposely designed to be simple and "crystal clear" - created without an abundance of distracting borders, images, or fonts so that students can better focus on the learning activity at hand.
