Use these task cards to teach your students to add elaboration in their writing with a variety of specific details. This activity is perfect for a center rotation in your writing workshop and can also be used as a whole class lesson.
Each task card provides a Halloween-themed topic sentence. Students must write in three details that could be used in a paragraph with that topic sentence. (Some sentences are appropriate for students who don't celebrate Halloween.)
Instructions include these types of details:
• Sensory language (imagery)
• Facts & figures
• Figurative language
