Why Lesson Planet?
Help your class build their own 20-word sentences with this step-by-step guide designed to enhance sentence depth, interest, and variety in the work of young writers. They complete five basic SVO sentences using a given word bank. Then they brainstorm adjectives (24 spaces provided), and use them to enrich sentences from the first section. They do the same brainstorming-revising process with prepositions and conjunctions. Examples are given at each step. Finally, they write their own 20-word sentences following the models.
