Don Killgallons signature sentence composing approach to writing is rapidly becoming a part of every effective teachers repertoire, in middle schools, high schools, and colleges across the country. Thousands of teachers have achieved astonishing resultswith students readily writing sentences remarkably similar to those of professional writers. Whats more theyve discovered that this approach is easy to teach and easy to learn.

Now, Don and Jenny Killgallon make these techniques available to elementary teachers with the first-ever worktext in which children learn to write sentences like their favorite authors. Using sentences from more than one hundred popular stories and novels as models, Sentence Composing for Elementary School offers extensive practice in four sentence-manipulating techniques: sentence unscrambling, sentence imitating, sentence combining, and sentence expanding. By playing with hundreds of sentences from selections like Charlottes Web and the Harry Potter series, children learn to write their own sentences in more effective and interesting ways. At the same time, they improve their reading skills by discovering the story in the sentence.

Teachers and students will find this textbook an innovative, creative, and enjoyable alternative to traditional grammar texts aimed at dissecting sentences. Instead, Sentence Composing for Elementary School engages children in learning how to build better sentences.
