After giving the middle of the year writing benchmark, I discovered that my students had difficulty recognizing a complete sentence and its parts. I created this anchor chart to help remind them. I, also, use the circled CS symbol to indicate when I want them to write a complete sentence. When they don't write one, I let them know by using the same symbol crossed through.
This past Friday, one of my sweethearts asked, "Are we going to keep doing this after February is over?" My reply, "Yes, yes, we are." Sometimes what we teach isn't in always in the curriculum.
