Ideas for Use

Sentence Starters - Suggestions for Use


  • These can be used in so many different ways......don't forget to MODEL, MODEL, MODEL, and have talked about and brainstormed vocabulary, have words displayed etc.

    *children cut out the sentence starter strip and glue into books - children use vocab prompts etc to finish the sentence themselves, or wait to dictate it to a teacher/helper. 

    *children cut out the words and glue back in order to make the sentence starter - children finish as above 

    *further down the track, children could also copy the whole sentence themselves at the bottom of their page after drawing a wonderful picture which fills up the entire page. 

    *use the full strips or cut up strips for children to glue onto a separate individual large sheet which after finishing and illustrating can be turned into a class book.

  • Ideal as a literacy rotating group task or center task

  • Have a specific 'journal' or 'sentences' book into which all of their sentence writing goes - great to look back on their progress over the year as sentences become fuller.

  • Ideal for introducing simple sentence structure and grammar concepts.

  • Even for older students you can set the task at a higher level, for example with 'I can see a .....' ask the older children to include describing words, and full detail and situation description for their sentence.

  • If the size of the sentence strips is too big just reduce them by choosing the 2 pages in 1 or smaller printing option on your printer.

  • We have tried to weave themes and special days into some of the sentence starters.

  • Many of these starters / journal writing prompts can also be matched up well with many of our concept books.

  • I believe with report writing, it's important to not generalise or be too 'flowery' in the comments. As a parent, I appreciate knowing which skills/areas my children need strengthening in. So as a rule of thumb - when it comes to report writing - I always start with a positive, then I mention an area that the student needs further development in and then I finish off on a high with another positive. Works a treat!

  • Great site. I downloaded lots of resources when I taught year 1. However, I cannot find much for Year 3 and I was looking forward to it. Could you please upload more for stage 2. Thanks

  • There are about 11 or 12 spelling choices for the speech sound sssss, so look at the THRASS resource chart. Not all there. It has left my child bored, and being told to learn the charts which still don't help him to spell the words he wants to spell, and is always being told its a catchall. A thumbs down for me too. Ken
