We've been working hard on expanding our sentences so that they paint a picture with words. Now it's time to start putting them together in a short paragraph.
Give students a picture of a child dressed in a Halloween costume. They write a descriptive sentence and illustrate it. Once they are happy with their sentence, tell them to add three or more sentences that give more details about the picture.
My kids liked reading their sentences to a student and seeing if they could guess which of the cards matched the description.
Next, we are going to see if their friends can draw their own interpretation of the sentence that is similar to the original drawing.
