Types of sentences are what we always study at the beginning of the year. We begin with making a class anchor chart. It always amazes me how much my students love making anchor charts. My charts are nothing much to look at but they get the job done.
The best part about studying the four types of sentences is creating candy punctuation sentences. As you can see, it is a delicious Friday afternoon treat and it really makes learning fun.
We used Brach’s candy corn, Red Hots, Smarties, and Tic Tacs to create our punctuation marks since I have a student with a peanut allergy this school year. You can also use the licorice pull n’ peel as a question mark but I did not know for certain if they were peanut free or not so went with Tic Tacs instead.
