Restate the Question in your answer! Get students to understand the importance of answering questions in complete sentences.
Included in this product are:
1). An intro activity to help students understand the importance of writing in complete sentences. The teacher will read a question and a response. The students will "get off the fence" and determine if the teacher's response is weak or strong. This is a student led conversation. This gets them thinking about "weak" responses and "strong" responses.
2). A worksheet for students to complete. Was the answer to the question "weak" or "strong"? Students will have to explain their reasoning. The teacher can lead a discussion about how to make the "weak" responses "strong."
3). A fun Dance and Answer activity! Students will listen to music, stop when the music stops, and answer a question in complete sentences with a student next to them (you will have to use your own music).
4.) A short informational text about Independence Day for students to practice answering in complete sentences.
I hope you find this product helpful in your classroom :)
This is always a big hit and allows the students to have fun while learning!
