This resource was created to give students concrete and hands-on experience with sentence building. The teacher will need to purchase six small animal figures. The animals included with this writing box are: cow, bull, duck, rooster, sheep, and pig. All other materials are provided.
Each part of speech is in a different color to correspond with the Montessori grammar symbols. Nouns are black, adjectives dark blue, articles light blue, verbs red, prepositions green, and conjunctions pink.
To complete the activity, the student chooses an animal and setting. The student then builds a sentence surrounding his or her choices. The student then records the sentence on paper.
I hope you find this resource exciting and helpful in your classroom. My students sure
love it! Be on the lookout for more writing boxes coming soon!
