Sentence Stretchers: A Writing Tool
When faced with a writing assignment, many fifth-graders cringe and try to avoid it altogether. For some, structuring a good sentence can be agonizing! Usually, this is because students don’t have the writing “tools” they need to guide them through the process. “Sentence Stretchers” is an activity that will give your fifth grader one “tool” to develop his sentences, making them more detailed and interesting. Show your fifth grader how to stretch his sentences – and watch his writing pieces stretch to a higher level!
