This is a center that I use during Daily 5. I use one of these pages about once a week. I do not use this to encourage lengthy writing but rather to make them aware of where sentences begin and end.
I am not sure if your students are still struggling with identifying sentences, but mine sure our. Even though we have spent a lot of instruction time sentence identification I have noticed my students still struggling with it when it is applied to their writing.
My little kindergarteners are starting to write 3-5 sentence or more about one picture. The problem is they are not always sure where to put a period. They often think that the one line on their paper equals one sentence.
I am hoping that using these forms for work on writing will help them understand sentences a little better and help them become better writers all at the same time!
