Making sentence building materials is certainly not an 'art form' or anything, but it does require some careful thinking in terms of how the lesson is going to help establish grammatical patterns for students and drive their interlanguage development. The guide and templates available on this page may help to streamline the process for teachers somewhat.
This sentence building grid has up to eight sentence slots but no picture frames. Recommended for slightly older children who may be studying multiple clause sentences. This template is also an effective material builder for TOEFL structure practice.
(Examples of completed materials using both kinds of template are available for download from the 'supplements for the Scott Foresman ESL series' link located right of screen)
