Teach your students how to stretch out sentences by looking at each component of a sentence (adjectives, nouns, verbs, and adverbs). Copy the sentence stretcher jumbo template on colored cardstock and laminate it so you can write and wipe. Post it on the board and model how to stretch out sentences.
There’s also a smaller version you can post in your writing center as a reminder!
Each month in your writing center, there are 5 templates to include so students can practice stretching out their sentences.
I’ve also included a blank template so students can draw their own picture and then write a stretchy sentence to go with it.
