PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson contains five activities to teach students show-not-tell writing:
Activity 1: Examples and Non-Examples. Students will study “telling” and “showing” sentences to understand the difference.
Activity 2: Writing Showing Sentences. Students will use “Showing Sentences Practice Sheet” to write their own showing sentences.
Activity 3: Writing Showing Sentences Using Reporter’s Formula. Students will use a questioning technique to create showing sentences. This activity is very helpful for reluctant writers.
Activity 4: Writing Emotional Show-not-Tell Sentences. Students will write showing sentences that evoke a particular emotion.
Activity 5: Show-not-Tell paragraphs. Students will study a model of student’s writing, analyze what words and phrases the author used to “show” and write their own paragraphs. Five sample paragraphs included.
