Juicy Sentences

Is writing your favorite subject to teach?  Well, I've come up with a creative way to help your little ones enjoy writing descriptive sentences. I have used this juicy method for years and I love to hear when my parents ask me, "Hmm, what are juicy sentences?"  '

Juicy sentences are basically descriptive sentences, but in a child-friendly and fun manner.  :) At the beginning of the year, I tell my firsties that they have to write a sentence that consists of 7 or more words.  They love to write "I love my mom."  I tell them to tell me why they love their mom and what makes her special to you.  Now, that's when my juicy sentences strategy comes into play.

I have to give a huge shout-out to my daughter at Tides of Learning who is experiencing her first year of teaching! Of course, you know I'm a proud momma! I told her what I was going to do and she said "Mom, I will draw the chart for you. You just relax!"  How could I say no?!  So this chart reminds me of my fab friends on our collaborative blog, Primary Punchbowl, and my forever baby! Oh man, now I need tissue!
