What our buyers say, "Extremely satisfied

These sentence starters were a good scaffolding activity to build up to writing sentences on their own. I use these in my special education classroom to work on sight words and sentence writing."

Really nice resource that helps students write sentences. I used it a lot with my EL students.

I am using this right now during our virtual learning sessions that are live. If we continue live I am going to print out and send home for students to have the actual worksheet and continue teaching it live. Great resource. I was able to adapt them to our Christmas themed read alouds. Thank you!
