 S10: To identify boundaries between separate sentences

10th Nov 2003

 S11: To write in complete sentences  S12: To demarcate sentences with a full stop & a capital letter  S2: To take account of the grammar & punctuation

Reinforce appropriate use of capital letters ie: at the start of a sentence, names and headings & for the pronoun ‘I’. Introduce activity by reading a passage from a book & asking chn to call ‘Stop!’ when they hear that the end of the sentence has been reached. Share text (Dev Lit 3 sentence level p.9) as OHP omitting the full stops. Discuss how full stops help the reader to make sense of the text. Identify groups of words within the passage that are sentences. Intro use of question marks & exclamation marks. Brainstorm a list of words often used at the beginning of questions eg. when, where, why, who, what & how. Reinforce use of ‘?’ to show a question is being asked. As class use the bank of words to formulate questions. Consider when an exclamation mark is used to punctuate a sentence eg. angry, excited, happy, frightened, surprised or a command. (Words at Work 2 p64) What are the people saying?. Introduce use of commas to separate items when writing a list. Discuss purpose of commas in lists ie. to replace repetitive use of the connective ‘and’. Stress that commas are used to separate items apart from the last two, which are separated by ‘and’ but no comma. Using white boards ask chn to write something they do well. Use these ideas to create a class list of ‘My favourite foods are ……’, separating items with a comma. Repeat activity create a class ‘Wish List for Christmas’.
