Please tell me I’m not the only teacher who goes crazy when they see lowercase letters to begin a sentence and no punctuation mark at the end of the sentence…not to mention the misspelled sight words that we are constantly practicing?
Am I way off base? Not even kidding…when I see them I literally cringe. LOL!
Some things that I have done to help this are…
- Daily morning message with errors that we correct together during morning meeting
- Sentence fixers
- Sentence scrambles during daily 5/literacy centers
- 3 weekly dictation sentences on our spelling test
