I am just starting my first English chapter this week. I start out with sentences or not a sentence. Then I go into the 4 types of sentences. I like to play games when I review the four types of sentences, it keeps the class engaged.
One game I play is Pumpkin Punctuation Four Corners. I print out these cute pumpkin cutouts (pumpkins because it's getting to be fall and then I can keep using them throughout fall to review).
I put one pumpkin in each of the corners in my classroom. I then post a sentence on my Elmo and have the children go to the corner that matches that punctuation mark. After reviewing sentences for a couple of weeks, I would then start saying sentences orally. This way the children really have to listen to what I am saying.
I also put the little pumpkins on Popsicle sticks and have my students quiz each other for a center game.
We have a "FALL-tastic" time!
