Are you struggling to get Kindergarten, First or Second grade students to answer comprehension questions in complete sentences? Before students can write in complete sentences, they need to be able to speak in complete sentences. This Speaking and Writing Complete Sentences activity will have your students answering questions in complete sentences, forming complete sentences and writing complete sentences.

More about this resource!

This resources makes a great activity for whole group practice because it includes projectable and printable images along with questions you can ask for each image. Students can transition to writing complete sentences using the printable writing pages. The writing pages come in 2 formats- with a sentence starter and without a sentence starter.

This resource was created for students in Kindergarten, First or Second grade . It is a low-prep activity. If you choose to use the projectable images, you can print the question and answer stems or use your own. If you chose to print the images, you can print the image on one side and the suggested question and answer stems on the back. You can laminate for durability if desired, or place in a page protector.

Table of Contents

→ 15 color images and suggested question/answer stems

→ 10 writing practice pages with sentence starters

→ 10 writing practice pages without sentence starters

→ A separate file contained the 15 color images formatted for projecting

There is NO answer key for the written pages because the results will vary depending on the child.

How Do I Use This Resource?

Previously, I used this resource during my morning meeting at the beginning of the year. This year, I am seeing a lot of success using it once a week in small group. I find that it is easier to target students and make sure everyone is able to form a complete sentence on their own and in response to a question.
