Woops, Look At Your Sentence!
Do you work on this as hard as I do? I have been using mats like this for years to provide practice in building a sentence but my students still struggle with the conventions of writing. Ther's not much transfer happening. Many of them have never held a pencil before this year and this is still very demanding for them. What's a teacher to do? I even built a reader with these same repetitive sentences in them and I created these mats to practice the language ( in my Farm Fresh Fun packet) and now I will give them a recording sheet to practice this skill. Maybe I will put them in teams with the words in a baggie and see if they can figure out their sentence... hummm. The recording sheet might be the key to success.
