Teaching My Friends!: Crafting Power Sentences. What a neat way to help kids write detailed & exciting sentences. I especially love how she chunks it and has the students do a column at a time instead of a row (sentence).
White papers had a character on them. Yellow papers had a description on them. Green papers had an action on them. The first thing they had to sketch was Happy Medusa Rides a Dragon. The second, Smelly Ninja Eats Pizza. And the third, Hairy Mom Juggles Bowling Balls.
