Sentences are one of the foundations of written and spoken language. Play with sentence features by building sentence parts using Crayola Dry-Erase Crayons.
Introduce the features of a sentence. Explore initial letter capitalization, ending punctuation and the concepts of subject and predicate. Share sentences from familiar stories. Work together to identify sentence features.
Invite pairs of students to create sentences using Crayola Dry-Erase Crayons on two individual dry-erase boards. One student creates a subject part of a sentence with initial capital letter using a red dry-erase crayon. The other student writes the predicate part of the sentence with ending punctuation using a green dry-erase crayon.
Next ask students to switch partners to mix and match subjects and predicates. Children can read their silly sentences aloud. Continue mixing and matching sentence parts to create new sentences.
Display sentence parts on a shelf for all students to see. Provide Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils and construction paper for students to record and illustrate their favorite silly sentence surprises.
Gather the illustrations and compare and contrast the sentences and content of the drawings.
