This free summer writing center is designed to help your writers work on combining shorter sentences in their writing.
Use this summer writing center as you get ready to wrap up your school year. This fun summer theme will be a great addition to your end of year activities.
We’ve had some requests to add a greater variety of literacy centers to our collection. We will be working on this over the summer! If you have any specific skill requests, please let us know.
We are getting started with this new combining summer sentences center that will help your writers.
One skill we find that writers sometimes need help with is combining their shorter sentences into longer sentences that tell more. We have created this center to help students with this skill.
You will find a set of cards. These cards contain shorter sentences and are color coded – the border color shows the sentence pairs. You will also find a recording page.
Assemble the center by printing the sentences on card stock. You will then laminate and cut apart.
Provide students with the sentence cards and the recording page.
Students will take a pair of cards and create one sentence by combining the two.
Have students record their new sentence.
For students who are in need of more of a challenge, you might encourage them to add adjectives to their new sentences.
As always, this summer writing center has been created to be a free classroom resource. Please copy and share within your classroom. Please feel free to forward this post to your colleagues so that they may benefit as well.
