My students enjoyed this!
Sentence Makeovers lesson helps students turn OKAY sentences to WOW sentences. This lesson is all about revising to make sentences better.
This lesson contains the following pages:
2 pages of detailed instructions
8 pages of simple sentences (one sentence per page to cut apart)
5 pages of pictures (one enlarged picture per page for describing)
1 page of QR codes that match the pictures for sentence writing (optional)
1 page bell ringer that can be posted on a Promethean / Smart Board or printed
1 page of exit tickets - printed 3 to a page
1 page of ballots for voting on sentences - printed 4 to a page
1 cover page and 1 credits page
This activity really shows students how to construct sentences that are detailed and interesting rather than short and boring.
Caution - This activity is hands-on and requires movement in the classroom. If your students cannot be trusted to move around the room maturely or do hands-ons activities appropriately, then this lesson is NOT for them at this time.
