Product Description
My students tend to suffer from “Simple-Sentence Syndrome” where every sentence follows the same predictable and boring Subject, Predicate, Period structure. Containing two separate activities, this Power Point shows students how to break down sentences into smaller units of thought in order to be able to move those units around and vary sentence structure. Activity one contains 4 practice slides where students identify and label the different parts of the sentence including clauses, phrases, and adjectives out of order. The teacher sets the pace for the Power Point descriptions, and the syntax is thoroughly broken down for explicit guidance. Activity two requires students to create a sentence with multiple units of thought (step-by-step) and then rearrange the units in different ways in order to create a variety of sentences with varying syntax. This Power Point can be used with a Promethean Board as well.
