The last time we met in the classroom, we crafted expanded sentences to give more details to our reader.
Try an expanded sentence yourself and write it in the comments section. HELPFUL HINT: start with "who" + "action" + "what" first, and always keep them together! Next, you can add "what", why", "how", where" and/or "when"...the order is up to you! Try a few combinations to see which one gets your meaning across the most clearly! Which of these combinations do you think is the best? It's really up to you!
EXAMPLE 1: Expanding the sentence "Trizak licked a lollipop."
On the last day of school, Trizak licked a lollipop loudly in the library. Yuck!
In the library on the last day of school, Trizak licked a lollipop loudly. Yuck!
Trizak licked a lollipop loudly in the library on the last day of school. Yuck!
EXAMPLE 2: Expanding the sentence "Jasmighan detests spiders."
Jasmighan detests spiders in her shower early in the morning because they tickle her toes. Yuck!
Because they tickle her toes in the shower early in the morning, Jasmighan detests spiders. Yuck!
