This is a writing task that your students will love! They will love going outdoors at home or at school to experience the season of autumn around them. This task is best to use during or after a unit on adjectives, so they can use their descriptive knowledge in describing this wonderful season. They should also have background knowledge in using transition words / phrases, as well as different types of sentence structure. You might also want to check out my "Rubrics for Writing" pack in my store to help you with writing assessment. Give yourself a nice break from the classroom, by taking your students outside to observe autumn around them, and then WRITE about it!
