PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"Now THAT'S a cool sentence!" This engaging assignment is two pages (one front and back). With a teaching grammar through writing approach, it guides students through seven easy steps, each one requiring them to add interesting words and grammatical concepts to one basic beginning sentence. It takes a sentence parts building approach.

This teaching grammar through writing activity will show students that writing intelligent and interesting sentences is not intimidating, and by encouraging them to select a funny topic of their own to write about, it just might persuade them to enjoy both writing and grammar a little more! The example sentences are about a blue-footed booby, but if you think you're students can't quite handle that name, there's also an alternate version with "blue-footed birdy." :)

In order for students to tackle this assignment without frustration, they will need to understand phrases and clauses. For assignments and minilessons regarding those grammatical concepts, please visit my store!

Happy writing. Teaching grammar through writing is fun!
