All of my students were at different levels when it came to sentence development. I developed this WWW (Wonderful Words of the Week) process to help all of my students acquire the common language needed when building sentences. This one-page assessment is the second of 8 assessments that begin with easy simple sentences and build into compound and complex sentences.
This assessment builds on the previous assessment, but this assessment includes compound subjects. This assessment uses a picture for the students to get ideas for sentences. (You can use your own pictures or look into WWW2 Teaching and Practice, which also includes step-by-step instructions about how to introduce compound subjects and conjunctions.)
Separate PowerPoints are available to incorporate Thinking Maps while teaching about conjunctions.
