Empowering Writers

March 2019 Grades 5-8 Lesson of the Month



How do you teach types of sentences so that students are able to understand the concept and use them with fidelity in their compositions? This lesson is a great way to introduce the types of sentences and continue to spiral the concept throughout the school year, applying the skills to several personal experiences so that students see how to create a variety of sentences in their own writing.  Use a selection of published examples either from the samples that are shared here or from a read aloud you are teaching with currently.
