Making our sentences Fabulous!!

This past week we have been learning how to make our writing more descriptive using adjectives. Our goal has been to change our boring sentences into FABULOUS sentences. Read some of our creations!



We started by reviewing parts of speech. Here you can see the
students using manipulatives to scaffold more complex sentences.
Making "rainbow" sentences was quite the challenge, since 
we're learning how to describe without using "is", and learning
instead how to use one, two, or three adjectives before the noun!
Resistance was futile! By the third day, they could teach each other. 
Some were handily tossing around multiple adjectives, 
while others were using one, but all were before the nouns!!
