Product Description
I mean...who doesn't really...However, Michael Kaplan is very descriptive in his book about Betty Bunny, a girl (a bunny?) described as a handful, who just can't hear the word NO when it comes to chocolate cake. I love using children's literature to springboard writing concepts with my second graders all the way up to my AP Lit students. After reading this story, I use this bundle to teach the concept of descriptive writing. Through a series of steps (baby steps!) students will analyze the story to find that while wildly funny, it is actually just a descriptive statement supported (excellently) by strong evidence, causing even a fruit tart lover to believe that chocolate cake is the most divine dessert on the planet. The end result will be a four paragraph descriptive essay (can be adapted to become a five paragraph essay). I have used this with great success beginning at grade two all the way up through high school. I have used this unit with gifted students as well as with special education students. Your unit will contain:
*title page
*instruction page
*reading comprehension questions
*evaluation of the author's description
*analysis of support for the description
*the building of a descriptive statement and the gathering of evidence
*choosing and narrowing down evidence
*the building of an introductory paragraph
*turning evidence into body paragraphs
*how to drive it home: the conclusion paragraph
*a form for the final product

Feel free to use the entire unit or simply what pertains to your needs. Feel free to message me with questions/concerns.
Thank you!!! And don't forget...leave feedback in order to earn TPT credits!
