PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This writing worksheet can be used either as a whole group activity to help teach extending sentences, or as independent/partner work following classroom activities on extending sentences. It could also make a great sub worksheet or writing assessment if your students can independently expand sentences. Six examples of boring sentences are provided, and students have the opportunity to use a caret to add details.

This activity can be used from mid-first grade on up. It supports the following Common Core Language standards:

1st Grade: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.1.1j Produce and expand complete simple and compound declarative, interrogative, imperative, and exclamatory sentences in response to prompts.

2nd Grade: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.2.1f Produce, expand, and rearrange complete simple and compound sentences (e.g., The boy watched the movie; The little boy watched the movie; The action movie was watched by the little boy).

3rd Grade: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.3.1i Produce simple, compound, and complex sentences.

Thank you for downloading! I look forward to your feedback.

If you like what you see, I sell an Extending Sentences package in my store that can be used as lessons to teach the skills explored in this activity. You can find it at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Extending-Sentences-Bundle-1462477
