We are SO excited to share one of our very favorite resources for teaching students to write complete sentences. Check out our Super Sentence Wheels Through the Year that includes a total of 13 wheels and student booklets.
Step 1: Copy the sentence wheels on cardstock for each student. Have students cut out the three circles and assemble them using a brad (metal fastener) so they can spin the wheels to create super sentences.
Step 2: Brainstorm a list of adjectives (describing words) as a whole group that could describe the main character of your sentence wheel. Encourage students to pick a different describing word for each sentence they create.
Step 3: Align the WHO wheel with a verb/phrase from the DID WHAT wheel.
Step 4: Align the WHERE wheel to create a super sentence.
Step 5: Students will write their super sentence in the student book using correct capitalization and punctuation. There is also space provided for them to illustrate their sentence.
