Sentence Study & Grammar

We teach conventions of print in a variety of ways. In my classroom, I feel like I was ALWAYS pointing out capital letters, periods, and sight words. Once we started learning about nouns, verbs, adjectives, and so on… I would point those out, too!

Our Engaging Readers units include a weekly lesson plan for you to teach conventions of print and grammar. All you have to do is print the resources and start teaching! Oh, and it only takes about 10 minutes a day!  So, let’s take a look at the layout of the lesson plans and some activities that are included.

Sentence Study Day 1

On day 1, you introduce the sentence. After reading the sentence together, allow students to partner talk about what they notice. This is a great time to highlight capital letters and any punctuation. You may also want to count the number of words. You can then use the coding chart to identify nouns, verbs, adjectives, and more.

Sentence Study Day 2

Day 2 is when students build the sentence and code it in their journals. Kindergarten students will use the sentence from day 1 as a model. Whereas, first and second-grade students will build the sentence independently. We recommend that students have a composition notebook just for sentence study. This way, it all stays together and is easily accessible each day.

Sentence Study Day 3

Day 3 is for editing. As a whole-group, work to correct the sentences. For kindergarten, it could be as simple as adding a capital letter and a period. However, in second grade, students are working to identify correct punctuation and spelling of words.

Sentence Study Day 4

Students write their own sentence that follows the model. Some of the weeks also include fun grammar activities and sorts that can be completed on day 4 as well.

Sentence Study Day 5

On the last day of your sentence study,  students can illustrate and share their sentence from the previous day or complete an independent grammar sort. The independent sorts can be used as an assessment.
