Writing Descriptive Sentences

Are you as frustrated with these types of sentences from your students as I am??? 
"It is fun."
"I like it."
"She is nice."

But... it's MY fault they are were writing like that. It's my job to teach them how to make descriptive sentences. So, we started learning about adjectives. I love Kristin's Parts of Speech Cards!

And then we snuck in some synonym work! You can read about my Fancy Word Pack {here}.

And we finished up with learning about BLAH sentences and WOW sentences with Kelley's Pack! It was SO MUCH FUN.  You can read more about how she uses it in her classroom {here}

*The BLAH and WOW words with the 2 boys clipart is not in Kelley's pack. 

We did a LOT of practice and modeling before I let them loose to turn a BLAH sentence into a WOW.  After we did some of Kelley's practice pages, my students were ready to try on their own.  I had them read the BLAH sentence that was given to them (they all got a different one).  Then, on a piece of scrap paper, they brainstormed ideas and details that they could add to their BLAH sentence.  They even practice writing their sentence before they got to write it on their final drafts.

I had them illustrate their WOW sentences (see how I snuck in a little visualizing with this).

I hope this helps your students build great sentences!

OMG this is spectacular! Thanks for the "spark" to ignite our writing. Now is the time of year that they should be stretching past those blah sentences. Much needed!
