Syntax Module 02: Sizing Up Words


At the zoo, students will explore how words function to describe the subject of a sentence.


Product Description

Syntax02_Product_Image-01At the zoo, the Tiny Woman guides students in phrase and sentence explorations. Students will begin to relate descriptive words (adjectives) to the subject of a sentence. These syntax lessons engage students in higher order relational thinking: how words relate to form phrases, how phrases relate to other phrases to form sentences, and how sentences relate to other sentences. These phrase ideas transfer from sentence to sentence and text to text, in fiction and nonfiction, and to new multi-media and multi-literacy experiences. Understanding how words function in sentences is important when editing their own or others’ writing, and for giving descriptive feedback to peers.
