It was time to add a new writing center (one of my students kindly suggested), so here is what I came up with. We have been working on adding details to our sentences all year. I always tell them they need to stretccchhh their sentences out by adding details....kind of like a slinky, hence the title. :) Someone along the way used that comparison once and I was a big fan.
The kids seem to be liking the idea so far. I think I am going to make a couple more sets of the cards. Check back if your lil ones end up liking the activity too! Click on the title to download.
