Use these writing sentences activities to help your writers learn to form correct sentences (beginning sentence writing.)
Use this along with your writing workshop to help your students build sentence writing skills.
We love the writing that is created during a writing workshop time. Students learn to write like real authors. So often what we see makes us think our children are well on the road to becoming published.
One thing that we struggle with during writing workshop is finding the time to give students direct instruction on sentence writing. Some students will pick this skill up through repeated exposure but many will need more guided practice.
We have created this collection for those students who need more direct instruction.
These resources might be used during small group instruction or during a writing center.
You can download the complete collection described below by clicking on the bold, green link farther down in this post.
Sentence Anchor Chart
Complete/Incomplete Sentence Sort Center This card sort contains sentences and incomplete sentences. Students sort them into the correct category. You can choose to use the cards that say complete/incomplete sentences or sentence/not a sentence.
Complete the Sentence Students complete the given phrase and illustrate their sentence. We have included 10 different pages for this activity.
Who, What, When Sentences Students choose a phrase from each column to complete three sentences.
As always, the resources provided here are intended to be free for classroom use. You may print and use in your own classroom or home. You may not sell or modify and sell in any way.
