I created this unit out of the NEED to have my student understand the types of sentences and what to add to their writing.
I will begin this “unit” with an introduction of all the end marks using the pre-made posters which I will print and hang in the room (this is like your anchor chart- you could also make a larger one if you wish). I will then have each child create their own anchor chart. I will be hanging up their anchor charts in the room so that we can refer to them often. They will also be gluing one into their notebook for reference. After a day or two of this, I will then create their end marks booklet. We will then spend 1-2 weeks working on a page or 2 a day really focusing on each end mark. Then, I will have my students do the sorting activity for practice. After that, I plan to do the task cards as a culminating activity. At the end, I will give the assessment as a summative. Every thing you need is right here in this file... just print and teach!
I am confident that with the repetition and the fun included in this unit, my students will have a more meaningful understanding of the three types of sentences!
