Guided Sentence-Writing in a Foreign Language

Students are often very capable of writing verb forms correctly, but the challenge comes when they attempt to write more than a simple verb form and need to write complete sentences.  Students are many times very unaware of how much they are able to do with the language that they know.  The teacher can help guide students in writing complete sentences while at the same time giving the student the opportunity to draw on the language that they know.  The activity below begins by having the student chose a subject.  He or she decides if the sentence will be affirmative or negative and then chooses a verb and writes the correct form that goes with the chosen subject.  The sentence is then finished off by adding details to the sentence that answer the question words that accompany the verb.
