This is a must have writing lesson to teach your intermediate students how to write complex sentences. This lesson should be used in conjunction with a power point entitled Six Sassy Sentences. After teaching the power point lesson which will outline 6 ways to write a complex sentence, students will apply those strategies to the "Sassy Scarecrow". You will receive 5 scarecrow organizers with a different fall sentence on each. The students should take the simple sentence and rewrite the sentence 4 different times. They should incorporate 4 different types of complex sentences which were learned on the power point.
After students have rewritten their sentences they should decorate their pictures. This will provide you with a GREAT display to use throughout the fall season!
I hope you will consider using this activity with your students. It is always a must teach lesson. After completing this activity my students have a variety of strategies to use when writing complex sentences. This is a necessary skill for students to master to be proficient on the new common core tests.
