In this Teaching Tip I provide a link to a short YouTube video I created. In the video I describe two ideas that will help kids better understand the four different types of sentences: statements, questions, commands, and exclamations. The first idea is an active learning strategy that includes a call-and-response chant along with a corresponding set of hand and body movements. The second is an activity idea that gives children an opportunity to practice these sentence types in a novel way. Give these ideas a try in class with your students or at home with your children.
A couple months ago I officially re-launched my YouTube page as the â€œTeaching Kidsâ€ channel and posted my first new video of the school year entitled "Teaching Kids How to Get Back into 'School Mode.' "
Each of my new â€œTeaching Kidsâ€ videos will feature 1-2 minute tips for educators and parents and will address a wide variety of topics that focus on teaching the whole child, including academics, character, and health.
