Dressing Up A Sentence Activity

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF, Word | 24 pages | Years: 1 - 3

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.

For ways to use this resource in the classroom, check out our blog, Expanding Sentences | Resource Download to Improve Writing.

    Hi. This looks like a great resource but why is it only downloading as a PDF when it states you can download as a Word Doc? Thanks

    I find this resource very helpful in the classroom. I have used it a number of times this year and the kids really enjoy constructing new sentences in a fun, interactive way.

    Hi, it says 24 pages should be downloaded, but I'm only getting three. Is this correct?

    Great resource. Is there a chance of it being remade in NSW Foundation font. I find whenever it isn't the kids write it how it is typed. Thank you
