Many parents will agree that getting young children to put pen to paper is quite a task. To add to that, writing requires a good understanding of grammar rules and sentence structures. That makes writing sentences, especially long ones, a tough task for little children.
Sometime back, we learnt about different sentence structures through the Code Game. Today, we will explore a fun way to write longer sentences using a strategy called – Stretchy Sentences.
A step-by-step guide to write longer sentences
Parents can make this sentence-writing game even more fun by asking children to describe pictures and encouraging them to explain their reasoning. Parents should ensure that they put this skill to good use in their classes and write longer sentences in their essays and stories.
As always, some children will find this game effortless while others may find it incredibly tough. Being patient with them by providing gentle nudges and clues can go a long way in making them comfortable with this exercise. Consistency is the key to success in everything. Be rest assured that as time goes on, they’ll gradually improve.
