Sentence Building – Level 3 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, on extended writing responses of end-of-grade tests, and in their independent writing show significant growth.
Note – Student books are consumable. These Sentence Building lessons are also available online.
My favorite part [of Sentence Building] is oral practice. Our teams take turns. We say the
answers out loud to Team C. It’s not too hard. We bump our fists for the periods.
We chop our arms the commas. Ms Fuhrman says we look like a dance team.
