In this graphic organizer, students include more information to expand and refine sentences. Explain that a single sentence can hold a great deal of information. To strengthen students' understanding of what constitutes a strong sentence, write a short sentence on the board. Read the sentence aloud then ask a series of questions designed to gather information from the sentence.  Examples are included with the usage suggestions for the organizer.

Teaching Tips

Encourage students to choose a short sentence from their own writing and then use the organizer to expand it.

 

Use this resource on your interactive whiteboard.

 

- Use this organizer during a writer’s workshop mini lesson during the editing stage to assist students with expanding simple sentences.  Model on the Smartboard, and then have students practice on their own or with a writing partner.
