This is the beginning of my second week of school. My students struggle with writing a story so I am starting them with the basics. I like to teach them how to stretch a sentence by making a super sentence. We start with a simple sentence and then brainstorm ideas for adding who, what, where, and when words as well as describing words. I like to show them this video that explains how to stretch a sentence and use describing words.
The first super sentence we wrote was about a monster. Writing about monsters is an easy way to get students to use their imagination and get creative. Click on the picture of the monster super sentence for your free copy.
