PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I made this lesson to help my students practice adding details to their ideas. Most of my students are able to tell me a basic idea, but few of them go further to show me the idea. This activity encourages them to not just tell but also to show - show and (don't just) tell.

The activity starts with a whole group activity/example that allows students to see the benefit of adding details to an idea. The activity provides opportunities for both teacher instruction and student sharing of ideas. This is followed by an exploration of "telling" sentences." Lastly, the lesson concludes with an independent activity where students practice turning "telling" sentences into "showing" paragraphs.
