Included in this packet are:
* Visuals for describing what is descriptive writing
* 5 Senses word substitute posters
* 11 mini lessons for teachers
* Graphic Organizers
* Thanksgiving Pie Craftivity for a bulletin board "Our Writing is As Sweet as Pie"
Each lesson in this mini unit helps reinforce the ideas of descriptive writing. Together, it makes about a 3 week unit for teachers. Most lessons build on top of one another for a comprehension Descriptive writing unit, however, you can take out lessons and supplement to suit your needs. For the most part, all you need to teach these lessons is a SmartBoard or chart paper with a marker. The format for every lesson is the same Model for students how to do the lesson, guide them through an activity with the teacher, and have them write independently. Some mini lessons many take more than one day depending on the level of your students. In each lesson, I have provided sample answers as well, so it is an easy activity to leave for substitutes because all answers are provided.
