This is a great product for teaching your young students the key "ingredients" for good sentence writing. The very interactive powerpoint and activities are completely aligned with Common Core standards. The key "ingredients" for good sentence writing includes capitalization of the beginning of a sentence and the letter I by itself, proper spacing, correct end punctuation, and the importance of correct spelling. Direction of print is also addressed. The powerpoint gives many opportunities for student interaction and discussion. The file also includes 3 black and white handouts (differentiated by student ability) that allows students a chance to practice editing a sentence. Each handout also provides a writing checklist for students to refer to and use as they edit. The file also includes a black and white writing prompt relating to the Little Red Hen theme for further writing practice and application of the key "ingredients" for good sentence writing. Enjoy!
