Do you have students who shrug at inspiration and puff their cheeks at imagination? Use this great tool for slow writing to get them thinking about not just what to write, but how to write it.
Currently with 54 different sentence types, print these back-to-back (flipping the page on the short edge), then guillotine the cards, eh voila!
Shuffle the cards and get writing.
Each card comes with an explanation and at least one example to help guide your students in their writing:
Example: the chiasmus sentence
A repetition (in reverse order) or words, phrases or ideas already expressed (balanced clauses reverse each other).
- Readers don’t need to write but writers do need to read.
- Never let a fool kiss you or a kiss fool you.
