Product Details

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.
