This Smart Board lesson follows Nancy Boyles Narrative Icons, but can be used with any narrative writing program. This lesson encourages students to take one big idea, a bedroom, and write small. In other words, students take the big idea of the bedroom and add elaboration and details using the 5 senses. Students will be introduced to the 'snapshot' icon and will be introduced to descriptive writing. In this lesson students will be able to write a snapshot of their bedroom to help the reader really picture it.
