We sorted asking and telling sentences into the pockets.
This week we are focusing on complete and incomplete sentences. I made these anchor charts, gave the kids sticky-notes with sentences on them, and had my students put their sticky note where it belonged. This got them up and moving which always helps our active little bodies!
Here’s our Incomplete chart…
And our Complete Sentences chart…
Then, my kiddos sorted sentences in their spirals. We had to talk a lot about the fact that just because sentences are short doesn’t mean they aren’t complete. We were very prone to putting the short sentences in the incomplete area!
Before we ordered these numbers we did some whole group activities with them. I had my kiddos sort the numbers by even and odd on their tables, hold up the numbers that fit the characteristics I was calling out (1 in the tens place, 9 in the ones place, etc.), and then we played a little game of war. After looking at the numbers in several different ways they ordered the cards from least to greatest on a sentence strip.
We did the same thing a couple of days later with larger numbers. This time, we colored the numbers by even/odd before ordering.
Now, onto finishing up our Henry and Mudge unit! Our focus has been sequencing events and identifying the beginning, middle, and end.
