Loved this activity ?
Kristina V –
My students were very engaged with this product, so that’s a win! I love this product if you have students that are on grade level or just below it. However, it was too advanced for my fifth-graders even though we spent a week prior to this going over sentences types. My fifth-graders are probably at about 2nd-grade level. I would definitely use this again in the future…probably when my students are slightly more advanced.
