Product Description
Stretching sentences is heaps of fun! Students will enjoy making silly sentences, creative sentences and sentences that make others say “Wow!” Includes worksheets and activity cards.

Use Stretching Sentences to practice adding detail and making sentences more interesting.

Use them to focus on specific parts of speech. For example, ask students to add adjectives, or adverbs. You could also focus on adding words linked to the senses (sight, smell, sound, taste, touch) to increase detail in the sentences. Students will need to make sure the tense remains correct as they add to the sentence; sentences are written in past, present and future tense.

Stretching Sentences sheet - uses:
Photocopy for each child, complete the task and make a display
Print a set, laminate or put in plastic pockets, and add to a literacy centre

Stretching Sentences cards – uses:
As a warm-up; print and give each student a card to improve, and then read aloud to the class or to a partner

Play the ‘Because’ Game – students read their sentence, then add the word “because” and think of a possible cause for that sentence; eg. “The boy went to the park because he was meeting his friends”.
