This product is a 27 slide powerpoint that walks students step-by-step through instructions on how to "spice up" their sentence variety using compound and complex sentence structures.
Can be used as a contest or game while learning, review or assessment.
It is highly motivating and contains multiple thought-provoking PICTURES and 9 VIDEO CLIPS (along with teaching notes) specifically designed for grades 6-12.
Updated recently with extra CLEAN, FUNNY VIDEO clips to engage even the tired, most reticent learner in the back of the room.
Note: This 60-90 minute lesson is the first part of four total powerpoints on sentence variety and fluency. Try it out, and if you like this product, you can get parts 2, 3 and 4. Each contain specific instructions on how to write four different sentence structures.
Say "goodbye" to Writer's Block in your classroom. The student who struggles with Writer's Block will be inspired to start his/her sentences with certain words that are much easier to think of than whole sentences when staring at that blank page. The classroom will be SILENT--except for the sound of pencils on paper--as EVEN YOUR STRUGGLING WRITERS will be ENGAGED in writing interesting sentences.
