Sentence Makeover: Hyperboles

Have students write the most boring, drab sentence they can think of. Then, toss their sentences in a bag and have your students choose one and transform it into a hot hyperbole! Once they made the drab sentence over, have them use it for a writing prompt.

You could also have a hyperbole competition. Instead of 'Yo Mamma" jokes, come up with another topic for kids to challenge one another with.
