B. Development-

1. I explain to the students the key parts of concepts of print and that they will be able to use these tools to assemble their own sentences.

C. Practice-

1. I will model the sentence assembly to the students via the doc camera reinforcing the terminology introduced.
2. Then I will walk around as students independently sentences at their tables.

D. Independent Practice-

1. Throughout the year there will be more sentence assemblies and writing exercises that will reinforce what was taught today.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1. I have 4 students whose paper will already have the sentence written on it and they will simply have to match the words to form their sentence.


F. Checking for understanding-

1. There will be informal observations to assess their understanding of the lesson.
2. I will also check the assignment to see how well they were able to complete it.
