What teachers just like you say about this fabulous resource!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ These sentence starters were a good scaffolding activity to build up to writing sentences on their own. I use these in my special education classroom to work on sight words and sentence writing.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Really nice resource that helps students write sentences. I used it a lot with my EL students.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This is a really good resource. Some of the class was able to comprehend to complete the sentence, others who were necessarily reading were able to get very good handwriting practice.
