Sentence Stretching

1 Comment

– A good activity to highlight the importance of editing, the use of adjectives & adverbs and being selective with word choice.

Hand each student a piece of paper & get them to write a very basic, short sentence (eg: The boy went to the park).
Pass it along to 5 people, with the rule that each person must ADD another word or CHANGE one word to another word to make the sentence more specific and more interesting.
The sentence then gets passed back to the original writer. Compare & discuss how the sentence has changed. Discuss how writers constantly revise & edit their work by adding, changing or removing words.
