Description

Our Sentence Variety Lesson Plan develops written expression as students discover how to vary sentence patterns for meaning, reader interest, and style.  This fun, interactive lesson also elevates awareness of the presence and impacts of varying sentences in stories that captivate and evoke imagery within the reader.

Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction Sample:

  1. Read the following before and after paragraphs to the students:
  2. BEFORE: I walked to school. It was raining. I got wet. It was uncomfortable. I dried by lunchtime. The day went faster. I walked home. It rained again. I got wet. I arrived home. I took a shower. I sat and relaxed. I watched TV.
  3. AFTER: I walked quickly to school in the pouring rain. I was soaking wet. It was very uncomfortable for me all morning until lunchtime when I was finally dry. The afternoon went by much faster. After school, I walked home again in the pouring rain, and of course, before I arrived home, I was all wet. I jumped in the shower. The rest of the evening I sat and relaxed while watching TV.
  4. Ask: What do you notice about the two paragraphs?
  5. Allow for responses and discussion. Most students should recognize the variety of sentences, and the second paragraph is more interesting due to this sentence variety.

Sentence Variety

My students enjoyed the activity a great deal. It is a great hands-on way to teach a not-so-exciting skill. I used it with 5th graders, and they thought it was awesome!
