Engaging activities include fun mystery stories that give students lots of practice in finding and writing different types of subjects. Using this resource will develop your students' understanding of sentence structure by focusing on why sentences need subjects and how to identify and write sentences with different types of subjects. These activities will help students develop a true understanding of sentence writing rules for subjects! This resource allows for easy teaching and easy planning which will lead to effective learning.
