• Writing Learning Opportunities for Day 2- Wednesday, March 18, 2020 


    • Today I will review the types of sentences I can write
    • Today I will write sentences that begin with capitals and end with a punctuation mark
    • Today I attempt to write statements, questions, exclamations, and commands in my writing 

    Estimated time:

    • 30 minutes


    • Writing different types of sentences makes writing more interesting to read. Statements, questions, exclamations, and commands can be included in writing.
    • Punctuation helps readers understand your writing. Without punctuation, your writing runs together. The types of ending marks tells your reader how to read your writing 

    Three quick things to remember:

    1. Pick a subject for your paragraph. Think about the main idea.
    2. Write a topic sentence about the main idea.
    3. Add 3 or 4 detail sentences to your paragraph to support the main idea.
    4. Try to include different types of sentences.
    5. Proofread to make sure you have capital letters at the beginnings of sentences and punctuation at the ends.
