Students practice sentence structure and sentence variety with these worksheets. Each worksheet starts with a very simple sentence, and step by step, students work together to add to or change the sentence based on the instructions for each step. They will work to add adjectives, adverbs, possessive nouns, plural nouns, specific words vs. general words, synonyms, prepositional phrases and sentences (to create compound sentences). For each step, they will be aware of spelling or grammatical changes needed as they write their sentences based on the instructions.
