This fall-themed unit will build descriptive writing skills, while also focusing on revising. Students start with a top ten fall favorites list, turn their list in to ten sentences about fall favorites, then learn to turn bland sentences into spicy sentences by changing "pebble words" to "rock words". As they learn about improving their words, they revise their sentences, rewrite them, and then use those sentences to create a descriptive paragraph about fall.
