A fun, unique, teacher-made game!
Kids will enjoy working on expressive writing with this game.
Each game will include 3 sentence mats. These will help with beginning the process of persuasive/opinion writing, giving the child more examples.
There will also be a blank sentence mat where the child will have to write more. The child can use the 8 question prompts or 12 picture prompts to come up with a topic. There will also be a chart with Opening Statement ideas, transition words, and Describing (supporting) words.
Also included is a small, laminated, envelope to store the 8 question prompts and 12 picture prompts. The envelope has a small piece of Velcro for convenient closure and storage.
The small envelopes will be stored in a 11.5’’ x 9.5’’ plastic envelope for lasting durability. The large envelope will vary in color and may not match the color in the picture. However, all large storage envelopes will have a Velcro or string closure.
The outside of the plastic storage envelope will have kid-friendly directions with picture icons to help with understanding.
The prompts, sentence mats, and chart are printed on heavy-duty card stock with colored ink AND laminated! The card stock may vary in color, but will always be heavy-duty and laminated!
