Welcome to the Child Led Environments Series where we are exploring how to set up and cultivate an environment conducive to child-led learning. As a parent and educator, when I walk into an environment with early learners, whether that be in a home school setting or preschool setting, I want to see those kids engaged in their learning. Young children should be manipulating materials, testing hypothesis, and exploring the world around them. No matter where I look, I should not see a child doing a workbook. Worksheets are not appropriate for young children for many reasons. Let me start off by explaining what a worksheet means to me.
Call us crazy (or just obsessed with English and logic), but we think sentence completions are just plain fun. What’s more, they are a great way to expand your vocabulary and improve your skills in logic. This is because sentence completions, like many of the standardized test style questions on this site (analogies, antonyms, reading comprehension, etc.), are very much like puzzles. You have a picture of what the end product should look like, but you still need to rearrange the pieces until you can realize that picture. Scroll down to view our complete list of sentence completion worksheets appropriate for all ages and ability levels. In the printable sentence completion worksheets below, students must select the best words from a list of 5 answer choices to fill empty blanks in sentences. Some sentences contain a single blank, while others contain two. These worksheets are very effective in improving vocabulary, syntax, and ones understanding of conjunctions as syntactical ”road signs”. Finally, please remember that this is copyrighted work to be used only by teachers in school or at home. Binding, bookmaking, and or collation, reproduction and or duplication on other websites, saving to disks or hard drives, publication on intranets such as Moodle and Blackboard, and or use of our worksheets for commercial gain is strictly prohibited.
There are seven primary types of relationships used in our analogies: function, degree, lack, characteristic, type/kind, part to whole, and definition. Keep in mind that these relationship categories are general; there are many other categories and variations used throughout these worksheets. Also remember that while learning how to solve analogy problems can be very educational and rewarding, it can also be frustrating. Therefore, we strongly recommend you review our Classic Bridge Examples worksheet as well as our Three-Step Method for solving analogies problems (see links below). This will greatly enhance your personal understanding of how analogies work, improve your lesson plan when introducing analogies to students, and likely result in a higher rate of success. The best strategy to use when completing analogies problems is the bridge sentence strategy. Bridge sentences are helpful because they enable the student to instantly recognize the answer pair by plugging it into the bridge sentence formulated from the question pair. If the bridge sentence works with both the question pair and answer pair, then you know you have found the correct answer.
