Descriptive Writing Fun!
I have found that many of my students have trouble with descriptive writing. These sheets provide scaffolded practice to help students become more colorful, imaginative writers. Here’s how I use these sheets:
1. Whole class- I choose one of the monsters and as a class we list all the ways we can think of to describe it. I prompt the students to think about size and shape, as well as colors and patterns.
2. Small groups- students work together to create a detailed description of a monster.
3. Individual- Students get a sheet with a black and white monster. They color it however they want, then write a description. 3 black and white monsters are included for additional practice.
4. As a culminating activity, students create a “Wanted” poster for a monster of their own design.
