Oftentimes students get stuck when writing. This resource was created to help students break through writer’s block. Students take a “basic” sentence from their writing and put in the details on the Stretch a Sentence graphic organizer below. Encourage them to add details to each part of the sentence as they work. The circles are to be used by students to determine the order in which they’d like to write the sentences. This resource can also be used when discussing sentence fluency and changing sentence structure.
I have included a completed example for students to view as they work. Print this resource out for students to view as they work on Stretching their Sentences.
