    Teaching Children to Write Complete, Creative Sentences 

Stanley Fish is a professor of law at Florida International University, dean emeritus of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the author of 11 books.

This is what Stanley says is going on in college classrooms today:

“A few years ago, when I was grading papers for a graduate literature course, I became alarmed at the inability of my students to write a clean English sentence. They could manage for about six words and then, almost invariably, the syntax (and everything else) fell apart. I became even more alarmed when I remembered that these same students were instructors in the college’s composition program. What, I wondered, could possibly be going on in their courses?”

Professor Fish is absolutely correct, and I realize that we could lay the blame on a number of issues:

*Teachers are so busy training students for tests that they don’t have time to teach sentence construction.

*Children spend way too much time texting and writing “code” on Facebook that they don’t care about writing in complete sentences.

*The public school composition curriculums today give too much time to gathering “meaning” from novels, movies, and television shows and not enough time teaching children how to create interesting, detailed, thought-provoking sentences.


                                                 OK, the excuses are all there. So let’s put an end to all the excuses!


                                                                                              How?    It’s simple!

*Teach children how to write creative, fantastic sentences.

*Spend less than $4.00 to learn a systematic, step-by-step program of instruction

                                 for teaching children to write creative sentences.

*Spend just 20 minutes a day, three times a week, teaching that instruction.

                                                                                 Honestly, it works!   You’ll see!

The fact is, so many times we truly believe that our children are capable of writing a good sentence simply because they seem to talk, at times, in complete sentences. While there are some students who just seem to “naturally” know how to construct a good sentence, most children do not.

And yet it should be “second nature” for all children to be able to construct a basic sentence complete with nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, and prepositional phrases by the end of the 4th grade.

Moreover, students who have mastered the vital preliminary work and gained the skills to write good basic sentences have no problem later on adding on subordinate conjunctions, infinitive clauses, predicate adjectives, predicate nominatives, direct and indirect objects, similies, and metaphors to those good basic sentences.

This is why, for just $3.97, you can purchase an INSTANT DOWNLOAD that shows you step-by-step just how simple it is to teach children to write fantastic, creative sentences.

That resource is called: Teaching Children to Write Creative Sentences

Teaching Children to Write Creative Sentences explains to parents and teachers exactly what preliminary work is vital before a child is ready to construct a solid sentence, and then shows you (with a teacher and a blackboard, and always beginning with the verb) exactly how to teach students to write consistent, creative sentences that answer questions such as Who? What? Where? When? What kind? and How?

At Candy 4WAY Phonics, we not only believe that systematic instruction is necessary for learning to sound out every word on every page, we, also, believe that simple, step-by-step, systematic instruction is also mandatory for learning to write consistent, creative, detailed and grammatically-correct sentences.
