Grammar - Four Types of Sentences
Access Reading Street at www.pearsonsuccess.net to access the Four Types of Sentences Grammar Jammer. This video will engage the students and introduce the four types of sentences.
2 Direct Instruction
Introduce the posters for the four types of sentences. Discuss the differences between each type i.e. punctuation. Give special attention to declarative and interrogative since the both end in periods.
Pass out mini posters to the students to keep in their writing folders to use as a reference. The students may use these posters to take notes during the lesson.
3 Guided Practice
Show the students the Brain Pop movie, Types of Sentences. This will reinforce the punctuation for each of the four types of sentences. This will also show how changing the punctuation changes the tone and type of sentences.
4 Independent Practice
Five lap top computers will be needed for this activity.
During independent practice, the students will be working in station groups. One station will be a grammar station where the students will use the Quizlet website to practice identifying each of the four types of sentences. This will be done as a flash card review with a sentence written on one side followed by the type of sentence of on the back.
The students will rotate through the stations each week which allow five students at a time to visit the grammar station. It will take a week for the entire class to rotate through the grammar station.
Each student will need a lap top or an iPad for this activity.
