Stretch a Sentence is a fun way to encourage students to add more details to their sentences (who, what, where, when, why). I created this half-sheet booklet which shows students a sample sentence created using all 5 components. There are then several pages with one detail added, giving the students a starting place for a sentence. The last page is blank so the students can create all their own details and sentence. There is also a mini-poster to have in your literacy center to help students see how they can add details to add "sparkle" and stretch their sentences.
