Are you looking for ways to get your kids to do more descriptive writing? Writing using the five senses is a great way to add more detail and descriptive language to writing.

Here is a set of 10 descriptive writing templates with picture prompts and the symbols for the 5 senses.

The purpose of this product is to help develop descriptive writing using the five senses.

Each page has a picture and a title. It also has images that represent the 5 senses at the bottom as a reminder to think about using all 5 senses where possible.

The prompt I use is: Imagine the reader can’t see the picture. Think about the details in the picture and use descriptive language to paint images in the reader’s mind.

Included are:

10 pages with colored pictures on lined page templates

10 black and white copies of the same pictures on lined page templates

As an extension, the black and white copies can be colored to match the descriptions in the written passage.
