In Making Sentences and Identifying the Four Types of Sentences, students rearrange four or five words to form a sentence. Then they decide if that sentence is declarative, interrogative, imperative or exclamatory. Every slide is animated and colorful and just what you need to teach children how a group of words can be rearranged to form a statement or question. And each sentence uses one or two high-frequency words so struggling readers won’t be overwhelmed with decoding. And students get immediate feedback for every choice they make.
This slideshow can be used for whole-class interactive participation (for a projector and SmartBoard) or independent practice (on a computer).
