This set of activities focuses on building stronger, better, richer sentences. There is a terms work that can be completed whole class, small group, paired or individually. It is meant to be a 10 minute warm up each day to revise and refresh student learning.
This PowerPoint reflects the learning for Year Two, Term 1 but can be used whenever the need arises to either teach, reinforce or assess. There are 3 Power Points, one for teachers with all the information, one for students to complete individually with editable weeks and worksheets for students with editable weeks. I deliberately did not add the worksheets as a PDF as many teachers have requested to be able to edit the weeks to best suit the needs of their class.
I made these resources to supplement the FREE Sentence a Day program that can be found on my website OnButterflyWings. This was a compilation that I added Literacy progressions and trackers to as well as sentence ideas gathered from around the web to include in your lessons.
These activities support Term One program. Download for FREE on : OnButterflyWings.

Each slide has a brief snapshot about the focus activity for that week. Below is a small snippet of what it might look like, however it does go into more detail.
A simple sentence expresses one thought. It has one subject and one verb (or verb group).
I have also created editable slides for each week as well so that you can add your own learning goals and success criteria
Students can share, discuss and reflect on their learning.
This is entirely interactive and also has student B/W worksheets so student can consolidate their learning.
