Teaching students to write good sentences by providing descriptive language is critical to creating good writers. This task card set gives students very basic sentences and asks them to create descriptive sentences by providing more details.
There are 40 task cards. Each card contains a different simple sentence. There are an additional 6 challenge cards that give the students a particular challenge when creating their sentence. (I usually ask students to do only one of these.) I have also included an answer sheet and an example card for students to use.
These cards work great in a writing center, or as warm ups.
