Some people are born with a natural ability to put their thoughts into words, but the ability to effectively put those words on paper requires a lot of hard work and practice. Good writing is a skill that develops over time; therefore, consistent instruction to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to write well is imperative.
That’s where Shurley English makes a huge impact! Each year, our curriculum teaches and reinforces the Traits of Effective Writing so that students have a better chance to develop a strong foundation in the writing process. The curriculum is designed to teach students how to communicate their thoughts effectively and write for all purposes with competence and confidence!
Sentence Fluency is the 5th Trait of Effective Writing. It is defined as the ability to use various types of sentences and transition words to make writing sound smooth and polished. The skills required to master Sentence Fluency take time to develop; however, they make a huge difference in the overall effectiveness of a writing piece.
We encourage you to help your students master the art of sentence fluency. If you need assistance, the Shurley English curriculum is here to help!
