This is a similar product to my Christmas-themed sentences resource. This resource includes clip art and language that can be used all year long! I also have a 96 page language combo pack that inlcudes this unit.
This is a really fun way to teach about the three main types of sentences: simple, compound, and complex. According to the Common Core State Standards, students should master this skill by third grade!
Ideas for Using Sentence Bookmarks and Practice Sheets:
• Have students find simple, complex, and compound sentences in the books they are reading. Have them copy them on the bookmarks.
• Work with partners to think of complex and compound sentences for the practice sheets. Then answer the discussion questions about sentences together.
• Have students complete a bookmark for each type of sentence and then glue them into their reader’s or writer’s notebooks.
• Have students create a sentence work folder and add the bookmarks and practice sheets.
• Once the bookmarks are completed, challenge students to use some of the more complicated sentence structures in their own writing. Have them find 5 simple sentences in their writing and change them to either complex or compound.
Common Core Standards for Grade 3 and Beyond:
• L.3.1. Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking.
o Produce simple, compound, and complex sentences.
