This lesson helps 2nd graders learn how to add descriptive details to their writing using adverbs and adjectives. It starts with providing just a subject and an action verb (these are the "bare bones" of the sentence). Next step is composing a simple sentence from those bare bones. Next, add an adjective and finally, add an adverb. This way, students can see how the descriptive sentence evolves.
