Teaching the PARTS OF SPEECH can be so much fun!  It is especially FUN when you have an engaging resource that kids absolutely LOVE. 

I created this resource to give teachers the opportunity to allow their students to practice writing sentences in a Fun Way!

Kids need this practice.

Step 1:  Teachers will teach students about the Parts of Speech using the posters and other resources they already have. 

Step 2:  Let them have some FUN!  Students will draw a picture using the Doodle Cards. Since they choose the picture, they are usually excited about writing the sentences.  This can get that unmotivated student writing.  Then you have your perfect opportunity to praise him.... now you may be able to get him to write about what's in your lesson plans. :) 
"Wow, Johnny!  You're an excellent writer.  I can't wait to see what you come up with later today when we write about _____!"
Step 3: Time to Practice!
Students will use the Writing Activities paper to write a sentence about the picture.  
There is one coordinating activity page for each Part of Speech included with this resource.
This makes a GREAT Morning Work activity. 
This means, if you don't have time in your day to work on sentence writing, you can still get is done! 

Since there are 4 boxes, you can have your students write one sentence a day, if you're in a time crunch. 
Or, all 4 if you  have plenty of time.  (Just kidding!) 
Seriously though, this is Very Engaging and FUN.  
Want more fun?  
Let them work in partners!

Step 4:  If time allows, have them share their favorite sentence with a partner.  This makes for some social time that they all need.

Happy Friday, y'all!  Another one in the books!

Our weather has been so cold here in Texas!  Not normal for us!  We even had two snow days this week!  Whoop!  I hope everyone is staying warm!

For this week's FREEBIE, I chose my ADJECTIVE AND ADVERB BUNDLE..(60 PAGES OF FUN AND ENGAGING ACTIVITIES)

It is loaded with ways for young learners to use Adjectives, Nouns, Adverbs and Verbs! Both products share the same format which is helpful and timesaving.  Explain only once!  
My students loved it and I hope yours will too!
