This set of materials focuses on combining direct objects in winter sentences. By combining two basic sentences into one concise sentence, students become aware of sentence structure and sentence quality. This can be then be carried over to their own writing and editing skills.
Students can use the sentence pieces to identify and remove the redundant sentence parts and then can practice arranging the sentences correctly. You can 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.
