This is a no-frills unit on simple sentences. This unit makes no assumptions. It starts out with identifying basic nouns and verbs and moves on to complete sentences vs fragments. It has scrambled sentence exercises and some work on sentence types.
It is great as a quick review, extra practice for struggling students or a way to make sure the basics are mastered before moving on to more advanced sentence writing.
If you are teaching an older struggling reader to write this would be a useful unit. Many of my older students have missed out on the basics because they were unable to decode. When their reading starts to improve, they have catching up to do in writing.
This quick review may be all that your student needs before moving on to creating more linguistically complex sentences. It may also be a good starting point, allowing you to see exactly where your student needs more work.
It could also just serve as a source of extra worksheets to add to your primary writing curriculum.
The worksheets are intentionally plain and uncluttered. They are designed to work with older struggling students so they have no cute graphics or distracting color or frames.
