This product is intended to provide students with extended practice with sentence building. The materials provided in this product may be used as two separate activities, depending on the developmental needs of your students.
First, the product contains color-coded pictures and sentences. The students will arrange the individual words to accurately describe each picture. If your students are working on basic sentence-building skills, this activity may be adequate for your students at this point.
However, for extended practice with developing sentences to include details, this product contains an extended exercise to build on the first one. After building the sentence to describe the picture, the students will refer to a word bank and select one word that could be used to further develop the sentence with an extra descriptive detail. The students will write each new sentence on the recording sheet provided.
This product contains the following two "I can" statements on posters, depending depending on the application of these materials in your classroom:
*I can write complete sentences.
*I can add details to make sentences stronger.
