Cut Apart Sentences
Okay, I think this might be my last post today... I just can't stop!!! I use this activity at stations. Even my highest students often struggle with proper sentence structure so I figure any extra work they can get with it will be helpful. I have glued the cover sheet on the front of an envelope and will store the sentence strips and full sheets in the envelope. The students will choose 1 strip (there are multiple to choose from so they aren't copying their neighbor) and one full size sheet to glue their sentence onto. I'm hoping the repeated exposure to proper sentences will encourage them to start using "2nd grade sentences" in their own writing. (I try to push their efforts by talking about moving up to 2nd grade next year!) Enjoy!
