As you start to teach or review sentences, you might notice your students need a little more practice with sentence writing, incomplete and complete sentences, and writing sentences with more details. This resource will help you get rid of those boring, three-word sentences (I am happy.) and turn them in to longer, more detailed ones!
Included are these activities:
~4 Posters (Subject, Predicate, Naming Part, Telling Part)
~Incomplete Texts: Students read a phone text conversation and decide which text is the incomplete sentence.
~Sentences Through the Year: Students sort phrases into complete or incomplete groups.
~That's Just Silly: Students look at a silly picture and write a detailed sentence.
~Fancy Sentences: Students are given sentences and adjective cards. They must add the adjectives to the sentences to make them more "fancy".
~Chop! Chop!: The Karate Kids have chopped the sentences in half! Students have to put the subjects and predicates together to make sentences; they can be silly or serious.
~Snapshot Sentences: Students are given photos to use as subjects. Their job is to write a sentence using the photo as the subject.
~Broken Fortunes: All the fortune cookies that broken fortunes! Students have to read the fortunes (subjects) and add the rest (predicates).
All the activities have recording sheets and student direction cards. Please see the preview for a better look at this fun, hands-on resource!
