Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Four Kids, Four Sentence Types - Section 3: Closure


In general, I was pleased with the lesson.  The skits are fabulous and make a lot of sense. sometimes happens, my determination to use the sentence type terms as frequently as I'd hoped, found its way to the basement.  When I asked the kids about the words at the end of the year, some couldn't distinguish between these two terms: imperative, and interrogative.

Frustrated, I'm determined to make sentence types a part of my regular vocabulary next year.  It may seem like a small thing, but understanding the grammar terms is a step toward understanding the meaning behind them.  For example, students who use too many exclamation points in their writing- my 5th graders sure do- should understand that an overindulgence of exclamatory sentences hurts the quality of their writing.
