Building Better Sentences by Adding Details and a FREEBIE

Do you need some writing lessons that encourage your students to move beyond the simple sentence phase and into building better sentences by adding details? When details are clear and specific it paints a vivid picture in the reader's mind. 

Details in writing will help it be more Interesting, Important, and Informative. This pack that I created has many ideas that will help and show students how to include effective details in their writing by using sensory words, colors, emotions, descriptions, and answering questions like who, what, when, where, and why.  I always tell students it's not how many details you have, it's the quality of your details that makes your writing stand out. You can find this poster in my Writing Details pack posted below. 



FREE Build a Sentence
Here is a FREE lesson/example of how to build better sentences from the Writing Details Pack. This lesson is for 2nd and 3rd graders. Start by writing down a noun. Then, answer questions about the noun. Finally, write your sentence. Here is an example of how it works:

Noun: dog
Does What: sits
What Kind: brown
How does it do it? quietly
Where does it do it? on his bed

Now write your sentence:
The brown dog sits quietly on his bed.

Students can also turn this sentence into other sentences. For example: Does the brown dog sit quietly on his bed? or That brown dog is sitting quietly on his bed.
