PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Have students that cannot speak or write in complete sentences? This is especially a problem for early ELL students. I have used this activity for years and it is hands down the easiest way to teach my kids about complete sentences. I start off my writing instruction with this at the beginning of the year in first grade and it makes a HUGE difference in helping students write complete sentences.

See this in action on my blog HERE!

This also makes a perfect intervention strategy for RTI students!

Included in this packet:
>>3 sets of cards...
*green - nouns
*yellow - action verbs
*red - adverbs/places
>>Kindergarten handout with CC standard I can goals {color copy and black line master}
>>1st grade handout with CC standard I can goals {color copy and 2 black line master versions}

The stoplight color-coding system helps kids easily know what order words go in. The crazy sentences that kids make keep kids highly engaged! {Ex: The pig swims in the school.}

Make several sets of the cards so students can build sentences with partners or independently.

This is also a great activity to use in literacy centers or stations {check out more stations here.}

Check out this activity in a complete, 6 WEEK COMMON CORE UNIT, including weekly and daily lesson plans and materials for literacy, math and social studies!

This activity is perfect for differentiation. Can be done with green and yellow cards only to start with to make it easier {coordinated handouts included}. Can be done whole group, small group, partners, guided or independently.

Because the cards only have nouns, verbs and adverbs, it requires students to fill in the sentence to make it complete using mortar words like the, a, on, in, etc... This is great practice for all students, especially ELL learners who easily confuse on/in/at {Ex: The pig swims IN the school. Not on the school.}
