This is designed to help you teach how to write complete sentences. This unit teaches students the components of a complete sentence: a subject & predicate. I have also used the vocabulary naming part & telling part for younger students.
Once students understand how to write complete sentence, it's time to work on making those sentences STRONG. (No more "The cat jumped." - boring!) You'll find activities and resources to teach your students to write more complex, detailed sentences.
Included in this unit:
- Naming poster
- Telling poster
- Subject poster
- Predicate poster
- Sentence Stitches activity - students create sentence by mixing and matching subjects/naming to predicates/telling
- Complete/Incomplete sentence sorts
- A Dose of Detail - students add adjectives to sentences to create new, more detailed sentences

- Interactive flip flap book
- Blank charts for writing journals
