Product Description
In this mini-writing unit, “Gather Together,” students will review and practice using sensory details within a narrative writing piece. Through a hands-on sensory detail game (where students become “secret tasters” at a restaurant), teacher modeling, and peer discussions, students will explore a memory they have that is tied to a favorite recipe. Using this memory of a special recipe, students will write and publish a descriptive personal anecdote, similar to what one might find on a professional food blog! Students will love becoming “taste testers” and drawing upon memories of their favorite foods!

This pack includes:
- A One Week Guide for Teachers: Contains step by step instructions for conducting the unit
- Student Handouts: Sensory detail observation table, discussion questions, recipe card, a section for brainstorming and rough drafts, sample anecdote, & sample sensory detail revisions
- Sample final copy of published anecdote
- Rubric included for easy grading
