How would you describe your favorite room? Could I draw it based solely on your descriptions and attention to detail? This is the task for your students to show off their descriptive writing skills. This handout/ classroom assignment will ask them to write with vivid sensory details that paint a picture, appealing to all of the reader's senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste when appropriate. They will also need to organize their descriptive writing; in particular spatial and order of importance. )
* In addition to the writing assignment, there are opportunities to “pair and share” and even an application of cross curriculum with Art. This assignment can be EDITED and tweaked for use as classwork, homework, or extra credit.
