Do you need some hands-on materials to help your students write better sentences? I’ve found that my students with language impairments typically produce very basic sentences that do not include compound subjects, compound verbs, or complex sentence structures. This affects the quality of their writing in all areas and school subjects.
These materials can help! Teach students how to take basic sentences and combine them into a more concise sentence using manipulatives and then have them practice writing the sentence on the worksheet provided. Or, use the worksheet as a pre-test and post-test for this skill by cutting it in half.
This set of materials is focused on combining two sentences into one sentence with a compound subject. For example, combine “Scott felt cold.” and “Maria felt cold.” into “Scott and Maria felt cold.” Included are sentence pieces to cut apart and have the students arrange, a worksheet, and an answer sheet.
Interactive Material: This material includes an interactive version that can be used in teletherapy. The file can be uploaded to Google Slides or opened in PowerPoint and then shared with the student. In order to drag-and-drop the pieces, make sure you are in edit mode (NOT in presentation mode). If you are using PowerPoint, you’ll need to enable editing.
