Types of Sentences

I love having Mondays off, because the rest of the week seems to go by so quickly! I can’t believe tomorrow is already Wednesday! Also, I feel like my students are really getting a hang of our routines and procedures, which is always exciting! We start out our grammar unit by talking about types of sentences and punctuation marks, and of course, Pinterest has tons of wonderful ideas to go along with it! I saw聽this pin聽which fit perfectly with what we were doing and was super easy to do with my kiddos! We had already discussed the different types and done some practice with them, so this was more of a fun review to check for understanding and challenge them to think creatively!
I had the (empty) chart up on the board, and each student got 4 different colored post-it notes. I wrote down which color corresponded to which type of sentence on the board for them to refer to. Then they worked with their team to come up with unique examples of each type of sentence. I loved what they came up with!


  1. Love the sticky note idea! I might have to borrow that one!

    First let me say I love the post it idea. I'll definitely be borrowing that for next year. Secondly, I am so jealous about your laminator. I went to Costco this weekend looking to buy the Purple Cow laminator I had seen the week before . Well you can imagine my sadness when I could not find it. I was devastated .
