Here's an inexpensive "a la-carte" version of my Super Sentences writing program. These engaging daily lessons make kids into thoughtful, accurate writers. When it’s time to write there’ll be no moaning and groaning—from the students or the teachers! In fact, those who’ve used my approach say the Super Sentence activity is often the best 20 minutes of their day. Students craft just one "super" sentence each day within such structures as "sentence containing commas in a series" or "dialogue sentence with the speaker at the beginning." In this way, students learn how to use the "tools" that make them great writers including quotation marks, semi-colons, dashes, similes, and many others. Rather than all those boring sentences traditional writing programs use, the models in Super Sentences are designed to get the kids laughing, to let them see how writing creates images. And because the kids maintain creative control of their own sentences, even your most reluctant learners will enjoy writing. Originally published by Scholastic in 2009, the complete version of Super Sentences & Perfect Paragraphs, is also available here on my TpT storefront. Best for grades 4 through 6, but suitable and easily adaptable for grades 3-7.
