Students love to creative write! Use this presentation to get the creative juices flowing and have fun doing it!
I use the sentence stretchers to have students practice elaborating a sentence. Print off the slides and have students elaborate by adding adjectives, adverbs, verbs, prepositional phrases, proper and regular nouns. As students practice, their sentences get more interesting.
To challenge your students imagination, have students quick write using the fun and wacky scenarios provided. I generally start the year giving students 10 minutes. As the year progresses, I back down the time to 5 minutes.
To keep all in one spot, hole punch the slides and have students add to their writing folder. You will be able to see them grow as a writer over time. The quick writes are great for student conferencing.
Included in this presentation:
56 Sentence stretchers
15 Quick writes
