We really began examining what a sentence was this past Monday.
We learned three things every sentence has:
Mrs. Beliveau revealed her hidden talent ... rapping!
|Ask your child to rap for you!|
We sorted letters, words and sentences as a class ...
... and then continued our sorting independently as we hunted around the room!
As a class, we worked together to correct sentences, adding capitals and end punctuation.
Then during our Daily 5 language time (more on this soon!), we practised writing our own complete sentences!
|"I am playing Barbies."|
|"When I was at Goofy's Cafe I saw a peanut |
butter and jelly pizza it was a blast."
|"This is me in the crowds cheering."|
Writing strong sentences is a skill we will work on throughout the year! Support your child by finding sentences in the books you read, by identifying components of a sentence in our daily agenda message, and by writing sentences together ... the sillier the better!
