Word cards for constructing complex sentences.
Use these cards to help your students write complex sentences.
Cards available include:
- common nouns
- punctuation marks.
Set challenges for your students to use a specified number of common nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, pronouns, prepositions and conjunctions in a sentence. They will need to change the first letter of the sentence to a capital.
Printing and laminating the cards will allow your students to write on the word and then wipe it clean.
Students can use the blank cards to add any words they may need to complete their sentence.How do I print this teaching resource?

Photos of this resource, shared by teachers, parents and the Teach Starter team!
I love using this resource for my writing rotations. Students have to make successful sentences (compound and complex) using the words provided. After doing it for a few weeks, I have now banned starting a sentence with I or they. It’s been great seeing the students improve each week thanks to @teachstarter resource . . . #successfulsentences #teachstarter #writingresource #compound #complex #term3 #students #teacher #teaching #year4 #iteachfour #iteachfourth #aussieteachersofinstagram #aussieteachertribe #qldteachers #brisbane #queensland #australia #week7 #tuesday
