25 lessons to help students with the three types of sentences. Each lesson guides students in four steps: observe (think), share (orally), view an example, and write your own sentence. Animated arrows and tags help students identify the simple subject and predicate of each independent or dependent clause. Each lesson centers around a photo that I took at a botanical gardens: birds, lizards, a squirrel, honey bees, a bumble bee, a black wasp, a fly, a beetle, a cactus bug, a crab spider, caterpillars, a butterfly, flowers, trees, leaves, cacti, a water drop, and more. All are cropped and magnified, sure to keep your students’ attention, sure to keep them anticipating the next photo. Imagine the excitement as your students view a three-foot tall red-eyed Towhee (bird), or a five-foot long lizard, or a twelve inch honeybee on a flower.
