Expanding Sentences -- Freebie

We have been working on expanding sentences for the past several weeks. I gave my kiddos simple sentences and asked them to expand them by adding adjectives to the subject. Next, they wrote new sentences adding words that told about the verb. Their last sentence told either where or when about the verb. Once they had written the sentences, I asked them to illustrate their work.

Here's a few samples of their work.

I'm giving away a freebie each day of October to celebrate Halloween. Check back tomorrow to add your link to the fun!
