Who Knew Writing a Sentence Could Be So Much Fun?

We have been learning the basics of writing a sentence:
  • It must have a noun (who or what the sentence is about.)
  • It must have an action word (the verb.)
  • It can have other words to finish the thought (when, where, why, with, etc.)
  • It must start with a capital letter and end with a period, question mark, or exclamation point. 

The Navigators were given the task of writing two sentences. Here are some samples:

M. rides the bus.
A tornado destroyed the city.
Mrs. Towne rode eight ponies.
A magikarp evolved into a gyrodor.
J. plays with Nerf.
S. loves math.
A man took his son fishing.
My dad is sitting on the couch.

They were surprised and delighted when their sentences were put in a book and they were able to mix them all up. 


Next on the agenda?
Write a five sentence paragraph with a topic sentence, three details, 
and a final sentence to wrap it up like a bow.
