Product Description
This editable resource is designed to help students strengthen their writing skills-- specifically focusing on compound sentences, complex sentences, compound-complex sentences, transition statements, writing for purpose, appealing to the senses, and showing, not telling.

NOTE: This resource is included in my 6th Grade ELA Materials Bundle so if you have already purchased that, there's no need to purchase this resource! If you're looking for more resources like this at a discounted price, you might want to look into the bundle!

Each of the seven station task cards includes a detailed example and a task. Below is the layout of the assignment (teacher directions).

Teacher directions: Cut out the topics provided and place them in a bucket/hat/pencil holder and allow students to select their topic. Once every student has their assigned topic, advise students to write a simple sentence about the topic. For example: if their topic was “hippos”, their sentence might be “Hippos are grey.” Then, split the class into 7 groups (there are 7 stations) and give students 7-10 minutes to complete each writing station. The stations over the following topics: compound sentences, complex sentences, compound-complex sentences, transition statements, writing for purpose, appealing to the senses, and showing instead of telling. Students will add on to their story as they complete each of the prompts.
