Stories Begin: A 2-Word Sentence Book

ByElizabeth D. DavisAlonna Dray

This simple, playful book of picture frames (subject nouns) and movie clapboards (action verbs) shows by example a basic but powerful construct of the English language---that sentences generally can be created with two words (subject noun first, verb second), and any additional words in the sentence add extra information. Read the book over and over to find new illustration details and new teaching points, such as subject-verb agreement; pure and slant rhyme; count and non-count nouns; English-Spanish cognates; sentence-ending punctuation; spelling rules for attaching suffixes to bases; reading comprehension strategies, such as predicting and making connections, and literary devices, such as onomatopoeia and foreshadowing. This book is also an effective mentor text for beginning writers.
