Included in the following pages are an example worksheet
that has been completed, two pages with simple sentences, and a
blank page that you can fill out and copy for your students.
This exercise focuses on expanding your students’ simple sentences into more complex thoughts by answering the questions:
• What kind?
• When or where?
• Why or how?
Finally, the students draw pictures that correspond with their simple and interesting sentences. This is effective in visually showing the before and after of the students' writing.
You can use this packet during whole class instruction or as individual work :)
