Sentence Building – Level 9 Student Book
This student book includes oral, kinesthetic, and written practice for students to acquire more mature and diverse sentence patterns. When students complete 2-3 lessons per week for 15 weeks, their performance on benchmark writing tests, end-of-grade extended writing responses, and in their independent writing show significant growth.
Note – Student books are consumable. These Sentence Building lessons are also available online.
I liked Sentence Building, especially the oral part. It helped me learn to use complex sentences in my class essays and stop writing run-ons. But writing the sentences online was tough. The computer counted typos wrong and capital letters! It made me slow down, so now I type 70 words/minute with 95% accuracy in Business Communications I. That’s really good.
