Growing sentences

Looking for ways to improve your students' writing abilities?  How about combining science and writing with a little bit of seasonal fun, too?

Begin by reading a book or two about the life cycle of a pumpkin.  Ask your students if they know what makes a pumpkin grow?  Then tell them that a sentence, like a pumpkin, can also grow.  Ask them if they know what can help a sentence grow?


Tell your students that writers use adjectives and adverbs to give more details of their topic.  These details make a sentence bigger and more interesting to read.  Below are some worksheets you can use to practice this new skill.

What a great graphic organizer. We have done the GLAD version but this is perfect for them to do on their own.
