Up-level your sentences!

Posted by eastwoldblog on January 20, 2010

Open it by adding more detail and making it interesting.

You could play this game with a friend or family member.
Start with a boring sentence such like:
Terry went to the park.
Can they add more detail and make it more interesting?
  • Terry trudged angrily to the park.

If you think they can do better ask them to try again!

  • Long-haired Terry, who had a chocolate-chip ice cream, trudged angrily to the park because she had a meeting with an alien, to discuss something important.
Try to improve some of  these sentences

  1. I went to the park.
  2. I walked to the castle.
  3. We played at the fair.
  4. I walked the dog.
  5. Mum went to the shops.
  6. I ate Christmas dinner.
  7. Josh was late for school.
  8. Maisie walked across the playground.
  9. Fred spoke to the policeman.
  10. Alex played on his PSP.

Post your “improved sentences” as comments!

Can you do better than your friend?

Mr W.
