Here is a quick freebie for you. I always want to set expectations at the beginning of the year for how I want students to answer questions. Since I teach grade 4/5 I don’t want just one word answers (unless it is an adaptation for a student) but rather more in depth answers that have part of the question in them.
I always tell my students that I should be able to tell what the question is from your answer. If you write Pizza as the answer, is this “Your favourite food”, “What you had for dinner last night”. or “Your dog’s name”? I want them to be specific.
This worksheet along with a lesson is a fun way for students to practice writing complete sentence answers.
