My problem was my students were writing…
BUT, they were not writing complete sentences.
They had a great idea, but could not get the right sequence of words to
make a complete sentence!
Their stories just did not FLOW! They didn’t make sense.
So WHAT is a teacher to do?
WRITE! And so I did.
I did some research, read some materials, and
I created a WRITING CENTER where my students can be successful!
I teach in a high-poverty, low-socioeconomic, Title 1 school.
I have had up to 50% of my class as EL students.
I have decided to help my students,
- Visuals for Vocabulary.
- Structured Graphic Organizers for independent thoughts.
- Practice, practice, practice!
How to help your students to write complete sentences? How about 3 steps to SUCCESS? This packet of picture visual cards is sorted into NOUNS, VERBS, and NOUN places for students to select cards and create their own sentences. 40 NOUN cards (80 pictures total), 40 VERB cards ( 80 pictures ), and 30 NOUN PLACES cards are included. Teacher suggestions for implementing the product. I suggest using them at a writing center for the scaffolding of writers and nonwriters.
And so, it begins.
