Daily Sentence Structures (2nd edition) has become a best seller amongst primary teachers. By the end of primary school, pupils are expected to be able to write using varied sentence structures. This practical guide provides a straightforward way of teaching pupils to use a range of sentence structures in their own writing, whatever their ability.
The sentence structures taught vary from short, dramatic sentences to complex, compound sentences. Compound sentences using coordinating conjunctions are included as well as subordinating complex sentences using subordinating conjunctions. Each has been broken down into a series of 15-minute sessions that build on each other. By completing the daily sessions, pupils will have at their fingertips a system for creating imaginative and interesting writing in as little as six weeks.
