Mariposa Elementary VPK Explores Sentence Structure

Mariposa Elementary VPK Explores Sentence Structure

In Ms. Bonilla’s VPK class at Mariposa Elementary, students have been discussing what sentences are, the parts of a sentence, and how to build a sentence. Students were given a sentence on a strip, completed some shared reading, and went around their tables reading each of the sentences. The students were able to pick up on the pattern of “I can” and decode words by looking at a visual. Afterwards, they rebuillt their sentences since they had been deconstructed. They counted how many words their sentences contained and then put them together. Annahisha and Cristian are very proud of the sentences they constructed!
