The Spontaneous Speech Spot


This activity gives students practice with expanding their sentences using more descriptive language.

The download includes 20 basic sentence cards and a spinner. The cards are approximately 2 inch by 4 inches and are meant to be printed on card stock. The spinner pattern can be placed under a 5 inch plastic lid with a spinner added.

The student draws one of the basic sentence cards and then spins the spinner. The student then forms a complete descriptive sentence by adding the descriptor the spinner lands on and makes any adjustments to make it grammatically correct. The spinner has the following possibilities.

Where: add a preposition or location

How: add an adverb to the verb such as quickly, gently etc.

When: add a time period or time word such as noon, before dinner, etc.

Which: adjective such as color, size, suffixes er, est
