Big, Bigger, Biggest Sentence!

This whole group activity helps students learn about sentence stretching from their peers. They work as a group and learn by watching their classmates. First, split students up into groups of three. Each group comes up to the front of the classroom. The first student makes up a simple sentence. The next person adds more detail. The third person adds even more detail. The group stays up there until each group member has had a chance to create a simple sentence (be the first person to start the sentence round). To add some competition, you could give kids so much time to create their sentence. They get a point if each team member can think quick enough - sentence makes the cut before time runs out!
