This is a VERY comprehensive sentence fluency teaching unit. This is NOT just a collection of worksheets, but a detailed and systematic way to teach your students sentence construction techniques. Professional writers use sentence fluency, a combination of simple, compound, complex, and compound complex sentences to add flow and rhythm to their writing. This UNIQUE sentence building strategies are simple to learn and easy to teach. This is a unit of 8 lessons over 55 slides in powerpoint format with a digital quiz that GRADES ITSELF! (instructions included). These highly engaging sessions, links to online videos, and activities will really help your students finally master simple, compound, and complex sentences. Kids will write scripts, prepare short speeches, compose songs all using the varied sentence techniques.
You are purchasing a PowerPoint slideshow that presents the lessons in an engaging, easy to use format for teachers. All that is required for teachers is to duplicate one of the practice sheets.These lessons will save you hours of work (trust me!). Kids don't just learn the grammar, they learn WHY they need to learn it and then how to improve their writing using the techniques. The preview images can not get across all of the gradual slide transitions that build examples one click at a time into engaging sessions.
Each session builds from the last. Resulting in powerful sentence building techniques that truly improve students writing. As many online links are provided for practice of the techniques, the unit works best with classroom that use 1:1 or 1:2, However, it is still very practical in a pencil and paper class. Just more photocopying required.
This unit is the 6th in a whole series of grammar units that will truly show you a way to teach grammar in an engaging format that actually helps your students improve their writing. This unit can stand alone as well - just ignore the first slide.
