As a teacher and a writer, I am in my glory when I work with young people on sentence CREATIVITY development. Usually sentences choke on consistent beginnings, brevity and the overuse of the same words.
This entry gives you 12 sentence starters and 12 sentence completers that can be used in a fun way to create sentences. I have added additional ideas for these samples and others you will create to be used as a senetnce creation game.
This activity has proven to be VERY effective as well as fun. Hopefully it makes sentence creation more challenging and less frustrating for your students who cringe when time to write comes along.
In my classes the sentences students developed from some of these samples have proven to be effective sparks for paragraphs and even stories afterwards.
