This is a fun writing project that can easily be incorporated into literacy centers, writing centers, small group work, or a whole class project. My students LOVE this every year. Not only is it silly fun, but it is common core aligned as well. :) Included in this product you will find a parts of speech sort and a booklet to create.
Students will first sort word cards into the category of noun, verb, adjective, adverb, or prepositional phrase. This is a helpful review prior to writing and it offers a good deal of scaffolding to kiddos who need some support.
Next students will create their booklet. On each page is a sentence frame that outlines the structure required for each sentence. After writing, students will illustrate the animal their sentence is about. When a handful of sentences are complete, students will cut each page to create their very own wacky animal sentences.
Step by step instructions are provided for both the teacher and the student.
My students really get a kick out of this every year and I hope yours do too!
