Sentence Starter Generator

Simply put the Ppt. on slide show and it will whizz through a selection of interesting sentence starters with examples, then press 'S' to make it stop on one at random. This is great to keep students on their toes when writing - ask them to get going and then randomly select an opener with which they have to start their next sentence. This could also be used to quiz them on their knowledge of linguistic devices and word classes. Plus, they love watching it go!

Conjunctions Lesson: Silly SentencesQuick View

Conjunctions Lesson: Silly Sentences

Included is an IWB activity that could be used to start the lesson. Children read the silly sentence starter, roll the die, drag the corresponding conjunction into the sentence and then complete the silly sentence. The main activities involve children selecting a 'sentence starter' card, and using a die to select a conjunction. I got children to work in pairs and record their conjunctions on whiteboards. There are two conjunction worksheets that follow the same 'roll a conjunction' format, these could be used as an extension or follow up activity,

Introducing simple and compound sentences, this powerpoint is the first of a small unit of powerpoints which focus upon the basic literacy skills in writing. My students over the years have loved this lesson. A great one to store away. This powerpoint is ideal for students who may be in intervention groups or are lower ability and need to consolidate main/subordinate clauses and simple/compound sentences. For the connection/starter activity this powerpoint asks for students to use their own mobile devices or voice recorders. Also, make this powerpoint more fun by adding buzzers or bells for the quiz. (22 slides in length) Hope you like this resource. If you do, please feel free to leave a review. Many thanks for looking.
