WHAT IS SENTENCE BUILDING?
Sentence Building is a hands-on activity that allows students to manipulate words to "build" or make sentences. Words are on
rectangles that are cut out, manipulated and glued back together to form sentences.
WHY DO SENTENCE BUILDING?
Sentence Building allows students to manipulate words and punctuation. Thereby, allowing students to interact with their learning. Additionally, Sentence Building gives students the ability to practice putting model sentences together. With the support of a teacher, students will begin to transfer the sentence structure and conventions into their own writing.
WHAT MAKES THIS PRODUCT SPECIAL?
The Sentence Building activities in this product follow a common format to support students as they learn good sentence format. All of the sentences contain five words and an end punctuation mark (period or question mark). A small “clue” picture is on each page. Each page also has an area to illustrate the sentence – to show an understanding of the sentence meaning. On each page there are two check boxes for students to self-assess whether they can read the sentence and if they can understand what the sentence means. Also, included in the product is a writing page where students can write the sentences on handwriting lines. The page includes check boxes to remind students to include: capital letters, end punctuation marks, word spacing and correct spelling.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THIS PRODUCT?
This product contains 30 different sentence building pages. Each page has a unique sentence or question containing five words and an end punctuation mark. On each page, there is a "clue" picture to help readers with the main idea of the sentence. Also, there is a box that requires students to draw what the main idea of the sentence is to show understanding. Students also have to self-assess if they are able to decode all of the words in the sentence AND if they are able to comprehend the sentence. You will also receive a page to practice writing the sentence building sentence - to practice handwriting and basic sentence conventions. A checklist is provided to remind students of capital letters, word spacing, end punctuation, and correct spelling. An answer key is provided to make your job easier.
TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE GRAPHICS
Each page has a simple black and white border. There is a small color picture to help with main idea on each page. This picture will print clearly in gray-scale. All of this was done to not "eat up" too much ink. The pictures and sentence main ideas are related to winter. (example: snowmen, mittens, coats, penguins, ice skate, ski, gingerbread cookies...NOT Christmas, Hanukkah, or any other holiday - one sentence refers to a groundhog seeing his shadow.) There are no graphics related to holidays to help with schools/students that are not permitted to celebrate holidays.
WHEN CAN I DO SENTENCE BUILDING?
Sentence Building activities can be done as morning work, Do Now work at the start of a specific subject class, as word work during small group instruction or guided reading, for end of the day engagement, during class for independent work, and more!
