An activity to help encourage students to add more descriptive language into their sentence writing.

Use this teaching resource 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 to the sentence.

Use the custom Word document to add sentences of your own or colourise the parts of speech for easier identification.
