In the writing center, you can choose to have your students write simple sentences or super sentences. There are word cards for determiners (some words in this section are technically "possessive adjectives" like the word "their", but some are determiners, like the word "the", so I used that title for the whole group of words), nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs. Each group of words is on a different color background, or printed on different color of cardstock.
Simple sentences are made with three word cards: Determiner, noun, verb. (Orange, red, blue)
Super sentences are made with five word cards: Determiner, adjective, noun, verb, adverb. (Orange, green, red, blue, purple)
There are also directions for just regular sentences, which are: Determiner, adjective, noun, verb. (Orange, green, red, blue)
The student response sheet has a space for the student to write down two sentences and illustration for each. The illustrations are a great way to check that the student can read and understand what the sentence says.
This writing center can also be a great way to teach your students parts of speech!
