Are your students struggling with adding the appropriate amount of details to their writing? They typically begin with not enough detail and then once you teach about elaboration they include way too much! These lessons can help your students see/hear how silly too much elaboration can be and how lame too little elaboration sounds.
Great for writing mini-lessons or writing workshop. You could even use these at a writing center.
4 lessons included:
- Identifying too little, too much, and just right elaboration
- Examples and explanations
- Write your own sentences
- A "too much" paragraph example for editing
Answer Key Included.
