We have worked all year on writing down the sounds we hear, putting our stories into drawings and words and now its time to start writing in sentences. I looked around for a fun and engaging way to teach my students how to write a sentence. I have a 2:1 ratio of boys to girls so I tend to think on what will engage my boys. I decided to use a construction theme to teach my kids about writing a sentence. I created a lesson for my Mimio interactive whiteboard using this theme. We spent about a week learning the ins and outs of sentences and then finished the week with an amazing craftivity that I tweaked from Stephanie Stewart’s Teachers Pay Teachers store!
Here’s a how I taught sentences.
Day 1: Letters, Words, and Sentences – We learned that a sentence is a group of words that tells us something. We read groups of words and determined if they were a sentence or just a group words. We also sorted letters, words and sentences to reinforce our prior learning.
