My class has been working on the four types of sentence over the last week. This always seems to be a tricky concept for some students. I think it's remembering the name of the sentences more so than knowing the reason for the sentence. For whatever reason; declarative, interrogative, imperative, and exclamatory are just hard words to remember! My solution to help students who just couldn't grasp the concept was to make a jar (of course)! My Sentence Jar has several activities and games for students to play.
It comes with anchor charts for the four types of sentences (I've included the terms statement, question, command, and exclamation as well). These can be used to introduce the types and then displayed in the room to remind students of the names. Students can play BINGO, sort sentences, and search for sentences. I also included an editable Power Point so teachers can make more BINGO cards and add their own sentences. Here are a few more photos of the jar in action.
My students really enjoyed playing the BINGO game! We will see if these activities helped when they are assessed on Friday.
I was super excited to get the binder. I've seen lots of blog posts about organizing anything from clipart to task cards to monthly themes. This binder will be perfect for any of those. I love that it has a clear pouch on the front and spine for any type of cover. The inside of the binder also has four clear pockets to store materials. It is very easy to open with the one-touch rings.
The label dividers make it easy to organize anything that I out into the binder. I like the color labels best because they are cute! Both dividers come with two sheets of clear labels that can be personalized using an Avery template. It's so easy to personalize them. Avery has free templates and software on their website for all their products!!
