Feed the Dragon: A Complete and Incomplete Sentence Sort
This product makes for a fun center to practice determining whether sentences are complete or incomplete.
Students will enjoy feeding the complete sentences to the dragon and will get sentence writing practice as they identify and rewrite the incomplete sentences. To use, simply print the direction sheet, dragon, and cards onto cardstock or laminate. (Cards are provided in three colors to prevent mix-ups if you would like multiple groups of children to work at the same center.) Display the directions at the center, provide paper, pencils, and the cut up cards in a baggie.
Common Core Standards addressed: *CCS.1.L.1j: Produce and expand complete simple and compound declarative, interrogative, imperative, and exclamatory sentences in response to prompts. *CCS.2.L.1f: Produce, expand, and rearrange complete simple and compound sentences.
I have been teaching elementary school in an urban district in Massachusetts for six years. I began my career teaching in first grade and have now transitioned into second grade. I especially enjoy creating engaging book studies and center activities for my students.
I believe in providing my students with plenty of positive reinforcement and a variety of ways to access any and all academic content. My lessons incorporate authentic, hands-on, and cooperative learning experiences whenever possible, and I provide many opportunities to build reading and writing skills across all content areas.
I hold a bachelor's degree from Clark University where I majored in Psychology and minored in Education and Sociology. My master's degree is in Teaching and is also from Clark University.
