Combining with Participial Phrases

Using interesting sentence structures found in Dancing in the Wings by Debbie Allen as a model, class members practice combining two or three sentences by adding participial phrases to increase sentence fluency. Action-packed settings and a familiar series of events are then chosen as the basis for descriptive paragraphs. Finally, pupils work with a partner to add participial phrases to their original writing. A great resource.
