This Five Senses poster activity and graphic organizer will help your kiddos focus on descriptive sensory language. Students will look for examples of sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and touchable details in any book or text then record it in the appropriate spot on their poster. Use over and over again for different texts.
They can write just the sensory words or a short summary of the context (see sample poster.) Great when reading fiction or informational texts and for helping students improve their own writing. Choose from landscape or vertical versions sized for 8.5 X 11 inch paper or enlarge onto a larger sheet. Also included is a printable "We Read and Write with Our 5 Senses!" suitable for a bulletin board display, wall poster, or class book cover. Check out the thumbnails to the right and download the Preview for more information. All graphics are original.
Sensory language is useful for fulfilling several Common Core standards such ELA Anchor Standard CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.3 “...using well-chosen details...”
and CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W2.3 “... include details to describe actions, thoughts, and feelings...”
and CCSS.ELA.Literacy.W.3.2b “Develop the topic with facts, definitions, and details”
and other related standards.
