Illustrating Expanded Sentences - Freebie

We are still expanding sentences.

We will be expanding sentences for awhile.

Probably all year.

But we are getting better!

And they like doing it!

After I gave them the sentence stems I posted earlier (click HERE to go to that post), I realized that drawing a picture of the sentence helped the kiddos see how using descriptive words  improved their writing.
So I decided to try getting them to illustrate the sentences each step along the process. Looking at a picture seems to help them realize they need to add more details to their writing.
Here are some of the results.

Have a great weekend!
