Are you looking for ways to help improve your students’ writing? We have put together seven sensational classroom resources and activities to help improve sentence structure and general sentence construction.
An activity to help encourage students to add more descriptive language into their sentence writing. Use it in small groups, or as a whole class. Students pick a simple, boring sentence from a pack of 60 flash cards. They then use the ‘Dressing Up a Sentence’ template, which will guide them in how to add some more detail to the sentence.
Use this set of 8 educational posters to help your students with sentence structure. Conjunctions (or connectives) are words that link or connect other words, phrases or clauses within a sentence. A great visual display for your classroom.
An editable PowerPoint teaching resource to help introduce your students to the attributes that make up simple, compound and complex sentences.
Use these cards to help your students write complex sentences. Set challenges for your students to use a specified number of common nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, pronouns and conjunctions in a sentence. They will need to change the first letter of the sentence to a capital.
Use this set of 5 posters examining independent and dependent clauses, including adjectival, adverbial and noun clauses. Visually appealing posters for your classroom.
A card game for nouns, verbs and adjectives. Played in a similar way to UNO. Your students will love this game!
Use this set of posters covering 11 different grammar concepts including: nouns (concrete and abstract), verbs, adjectives, adverbs, adverbial phrases, noun groups, articles, pronouns (personal and possessive), prepositions and conjunctions.
