PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

How do I do it?
One of the most wonderful things about reading a story is when you can imagine what it looks like in your mind. Choose a few sentences that students of different proficiency levels will understand from familiar books and read them aloud to students. Ask students to draw or share the images in their minds. Introduce the anchor chart. Some sentences do not make a picture in your head (telling sentences) and some do (showing sentences). Choose a telling sentence from a book or a student and work with the class to make it a showing sentence by adding details about what can be seen, heard, felt, and tasted (as appropriate). Next, students can be given a telling sentence to make into a showing sentence with a partner. Encourage students to use showing sentences when they write narratives.

Variations & Extensions
Provide picture dictionaries for language learners and have students refer to word walls to add detail to their showing sentences.
