Boot Camp- Complete Sentences

I didn't post here about last week's Boot Camp lesson. Instead, I posted on our Third Grade Thinkers blog. This week I will post on both, just to cover my bases. :)

My lesson for Boot Camp was making complete sentences. So, of course we had to go over what a sentence needs to be complete. Here comes a jingle!

Sentence Jingle:
A sentence, sentence, sentence
Is complete, complete, complete
When 5 simple rules
It meets, meets, meets.

It has a subject, subject, subject
And a verb, verb, verb
It makes sense, sense, sense
With every word, word, word.

Add a capital letter, letter
And an end mark, mark.
Now we're finished and aren't we smart?
Now our sentence has all its parts.
Huh!

By far this was the best team of the day. Great job, Soldiers!

After practicing the song and talking about sentences, we practiced identifying complete sentences and fragments. Mrs. Jackson worked on types of sentences in her room, and Ms. Roach and Ms. Chastain worked on math skills. They promised to update the Third Grade Thinkers blog with information about their lessons, so make sure to check!

p.s. Check back tomorrow morning to see our newest BIG PLANS interview! Photojournalist Ramsay Fulbright!
