Fun Friday and a Winner!!

Congratulations to my big winner of my 100 Follower Giveaway!  (click here to see) Thank you so much for entering, following, posting, and participating! 

Now, it is time for Fun Friday!!  I don't know about you, but I was ready for Friday this week.  We have been so busy with school and volleyball!  I have loved watching my girls play ball for the first time this year.  I am so proud of both of them!

For Fun Friday this week I wanted to share an activity with you that I did with my students.  Hopefully, your students are great at writing complete sentences and not writing run-on sentences.  Unfortunately, this is a weakness for many in my classes this year, so I tried to come up with some activities for my students that would reinforce writing complete sentences.  First, after smart board activities and Power Points, we created an anchor chart about sentences.

Next, I created stations around the room and told students that they would be working with their partners.  At each station, I placed a chapter book with an interesting cover.  I instructed each team to write 4 sentences about each book cover:  one declarative, one interrogative, one imperative, and one exclamatory,  capitalizing and punctuating correctly.  The students loved rotating around the room and writing sentence.

Students then created flip books about the kinds of sentences.  These turned out really cute.
