Writing 2 Expanded/Super Sentences to Show How Descriptive Words Make a Difference

We continue to talk about adding detail to sentences using adjectives, adverbs (-ly words), and other details such as explaining when, where, and why.

I started each student with the sentence "Musicians played." They needed to choose 2 types of music that musicians could play (we brainstormed together). Using an app of their choice they wrote 2 sentences, one about each type of music, that would demonstrate their understanding of an appropriate situation for that type of music and how to convey that information to the reader.
