This lesson will help children develop full and interesting sentences while teaching them the concept of using a variety of sentence structures. This bulletin board idea and center idea will help to reinforce the concept once you have completed the direct teaching. This lesson should be repeated in a scaffolded manner until students can create quality sentences as a habit. This unit will also reinforce the study of parts of speech, use of prepositional phrases, and the purposes of clauses. The multilevel unit will grow with your students and should be taught that way. After many students have mastered the habit of developing sentences, some may still need to have small group writing instruction in the process or even individual conferencing on the topic. This material and other minilessons can be found in Components of Quality Composition by Dr Carol Barsby and can be found at journeysprofessionaldevelopment.com.
