Dressing Up a Sentence Activity

Dressing Up a Sentence

An activity to help encourage students to add more descriptive language into their sentence writing. Use it in small groups, or as a whole class. Students pick a simple, boring sentence from a pack of 60 flash cards. They then use the ‘Dressing Up a Sentence’ template, which will guide them in how to add some more detail to the sentence.
