Want to help your kids expand their sentences?
There are 8 sentences where students add a new feature each day including:
-a noun (change to a specif noun i.e instead of girl princess etc)
-a verb (change to less common verb i.e. sprinted instead of run)
-extra detail by thinking about where it happened/why it happened etc
Student copy the original sentence and each day rewrite the sentence to include each of the grammatical features.
Help them turn a sentence like this.....
The baby cried.
On the way to the beach the unhappy newborn baby girl wailed loudly because her nasty big brother snatched her soft and cuddly teddy.
