I found this on Tumblr and was really inspired.

I would love to build a lesson around it.

  1. Have the students write their own 5 Word Sentences
  2. Have each student share one of the sentences.
  3. Challenge students to create a 5 Sentence Paragraph using only 5 Word Sentences.
  4. Have a sharing session.
  5. Discuss the pros and cons of using only 5 words.
  6. Share the above images and discuss the importance of varying sentence length.

Isn’t that a great idea?
