 teacher will show students how to make a short sentence using their given words and why the sentence makes sense
 allow students to do a few alone and ask questions to the classroom to see if the class understands why or why not the sentence is correct
 Some students may need more time than others.
Checking For Understanding:
 check sentences during independent work to make sure students understand the sentences they are writing and why they make sense.
 allow students to finish up sentences and share them if they want and after everyone has finished have them help put materials away.
 children did get better at writing and putting sentences together as they helped more. Activity took about 30 minutes to do
Teacher Reflections:
 this activity was fun for the children they did get frustrated at times but with a little help the children understood the concept. Divergent Question: #1- What do you enjoy most about writing and working together on sentences? #2- Are there things you would like to work on having to do with your words?
