The students remained at their desks while writing on their snowballs. Then, one table at a time, went to the basketball hoop to shoot their snowball.
The teacher began by reviewing sentence structure with the class. She covered different types of sentences and their little sayings they had for the connectors.
After the teacher reviewed simple, compound, and complex sentences with the students, the teacher and PAIR specialist said different sentences out loud and the students had to write simple, compound, or complex on their piece of paper. After a few rounds of asking these questions, the students were then given simple, compound, or complex and had to write their own sentence.
The same was done with the connectors. The students were asked to identify whether the connector was for a compound or complex sentence and they were also asked to write a complex connector and a compound connector.
