The reinforcement of concepts can sometimes be a tedious task. Here is a great way to practice sentence building during center time:
1. Create a word-bank wall using any flat surface. (An old metal filing cabinet makes a great wall.)
2. Make labels for the parts of speech that you have introduced to your students so far this year.
3. Include examples of the parts of speech under the labels.
4. Now, it's Activity Time! Instruct your students to move the words around to build sentences.
This is wonderful practice for your kinesthetic and concrete learners! Don't forget to make sure the sentence has a subject, verb, and makes complete sense.
