This activity furthers the process of fascinating sentence writing using phrase manipulation as a primary method. There are three phrase lists, each made up of 100 items. This packet will aid students in creating a healthy 1,000,000 fascinating, grammatically correct sentences. Students will write sentences with a never-before-possessed proficiency. Again, what would normally take a matter of months will be accomplished in a matter of days using this tool. One of the most powerful and necessary attributes boasted by this methodology is that this writing technique requires the students to read and process messages before they write their sentences. Too, the sentences produced using this technique typically exceed the quality expected by middle grade writers!
