Product Description
This lesson has been a game changer in my classroom. It gives student a concrete way to add description to their writing. It focuses on taking a "snapshot" or a picture of the setting (or what is going on) and describing it in a detailed way. Students use their senses to create a well balanced decription of what they want their reader to see in their mind's eye.

This lesson includes:
-Teacher Lesson Plans (in-depth)
-Teacher Lesson Plans (At-a-Glance)
-Camera Template for Senses
-Drawing Sheet Templates
-Adjective List
-Editing Mini Checklist
-Photos of Sample Anchor Charts
-Photos of Student Work Samples

This lesson plan is based on a 30-45 minute writing block, you can work through these lessons more quickly if you have a longer writing time each day. It is a great lesson to start with because it can use referenced many times throughout the school year. It provides students with a more “concrete” reminder of what it means to add sensory details to their writing. I selected the “beach” as our location, but you know your students best. Choose a place that students can make a real connection to. If you think your students are ready to make the jump, allow them to choose their own location or allow each group to choose an agreed upon location.
