Product Description
After introducing the concept of parallel structure to your students, this worksheet would make for a great practice opportunity. The students will write a total of 3 postcards with embedded scaffolding.

- On the 1st postcard, students complete a mad-lib to keep text in a parallel structure.
- On the 2nd postcard, students revise underlined segments and cut unnecessary words to create parallel structure.
- On the 3rd postcard, students write their own 2-3 sentence postcard from scratch in parallel structure.

Answers will vary but samples of all 3 postcards are provided-- just click the green "preview" button to see the samples! The 3rd could be used as a teacher model.

As a bonus review, students get to practice writing addresses appropriately, which is an important real-life skill.

The assignment could be used for partner practice, formative assessment, homework, sub plans, or summer school!

This assignment could even be transformed into a mini-unit where students eventually wrote a real postcard to a friend or relative. This might be done after completing several drafts and perfecting their use of parallel structure. You may be able to buy bulk postcards for an inexpensive price online or find a local store that would be willing to donate enough for each of your students.

P.S. I got my cute postcard clipart from this fellow TpT seller who allows her work to be used commercially on TpT! Woohoo! Here's the link: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Postcard-Clip-Art-Set-2604519
