Stretch the Sentence

When writing, it is important to include details. This helps you to 'paint a picture' in the mind of your readers. In this activity, you have been given five sentences that do not include details. Your task is to S T R E T C H the sentences by adding details. You can use the questions "Who?", "What?", "When?", "Where?", "Why?" and "How?" to help you. Here is an example: Original sentence - The boy played. Stretched sentence - Yesterday, the tall, young boy played basketball at the playground with his friend, Bob. You can see that the second, stretched sentence adds a lot more details. Use the tool to write your sentences on the templates provided. **Remember that you are only writing one sentence, not a story.
