Let's Build a Sentence Unit Plan

Teach Starter Publishing
10 x lessons | Suitable for years: 1 - 2

This English unit has been designed to introduce the key components of simple and compound sentences to younger students; specifically, capital letters and punctuation; verbs, nouns, adjectives and conjunctions.

It consists of 10 lessons of approximately 60 minutes duration.

The sequence of lessons and suggested time frames should be regarded as a guide only; teachers should pace lessons in accordance with the individual learning needs of their class.

An independent writing task, which may couple as an assessment task, is included in the unit.
