highlighters

First on an overhead whole class, then with partners, and finally individually I give students text I've copied from various books. They use highlighters to identify sentences that begin interestingly. I also show them examples of pieces where all the sentence begin the same.

We also take sample sentences and write them 3 different ways to show the differences.
I'd love to have some more ideas!
