Teaching students how to identify sensory details in what they read? Looking to give students a better understanding of sensory details so that they can include them in their own writing? This introductory/practice product is for you!
This two-part product is perfect for introducing and practicing sensory details with your students. In the first product, students will first take guided notes over what sensory details are, and will review given examples of sensory details for each of the five main senses.
On the back of the guided note sheet, students will complete several practice exercises that help them familiarize themselves with the question "How does the author appeal to your senses?" This wording is commonly seen on standardized tests (aka PARCC, AIR, etc).
After completing the first two-sided page, a second practice activity is included to reinforce sensory detail skills. In this activity, students are asked to use any books available to them to find and record sensory details for all five main senses. This activity works well to review concepts covered on the initial guided note sheet.
This product includes:
-One 2-sided guided note and practice page (guided notes on front, extended response passages/questions on back)
-One 2-sided practice activity ("Sensory Detail Scavenger Hunt") to reinforce skills
-Answer key for guided notes/practice page
-Ink-saver (border-free) version of all pages
