Sentence Composing for Elementary School: A Worktext To Build Better Sentences.
Killgallon, Don; Killgallon, Jenny
Using this workbook, elementary students can learn to write sentences like their favorite authors. Using sentences from more than 100 popular stories and novels as models, the workbook offers extensive practice in four sentence-manipulating techniques: sentence unscrambling, sentence imitating, sentence combining, and sentence expanding. It shows how, by playing with hundreds of sentences from selections like "Charlotte's Web" and the Harry Potter series, children can learn to write their own sentences in more effective and interesting ways and, at the same time, improve their reading skills by discovering the story in the sentence. The workbook engages children in learning how to build better sentences. Contains an answer key, labeled "References." (NKA)
