To “finish up” our school year, ALuv and I worked just a bit on making complete sentences (requiring only a subject and verb). Over at WeTeach, I was greatly inspired by Jana of Thinking Out Loud. Her lesson plan and video are amazing, by the way! You’ve just got to check it out!
So, I got to work. ALuv and I talked about complete and incomplete sentences…they need a WHO (a subject) and a DID WHAT (a verb). (I marked my who in red and my did what in blue-I meant to do it the same way as Jana did, but forgot which colors she used.)
On another day, we used our new educational dice for some sentence fun. We reviewed first by re-sorting our who + did what sentences. I created some WHO and DID WHAT inserts for the dice (you can download them HERE for FREE-It’s called Roll a Simple Sentence).
he used Jana’s recording sheet (found on her download) and wrote each sentence down, then read it aloud. He needed a few reminders that a complete sentence needs: A capital letter, a complete thought, and punctuation.
IF YOU LIKED THIS ACTIVITY, TRY ROLL A SILLY SENTENCE! IT’S SURE TO GET THEM LEARNING AND LAUGHING!
