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 PowerPoint is the sixth of 8 that begin with easy simple sentences and build into compound and complex sentences. This PowerPoint includes step-by-step instructions of how to introduce compound sentences. Many pictures are included with this model of teaching.
Common Core Language Standards are also utilized.
Separate PowerPoints are available to incorporate Thinking Maps while teaching about Compound Sentences.
