Show Don't Tell Writing PowerPoint: The "Show, Don't Tell" writing strategy is designed to help students use descriptive words and sentences to improve the quality of their writing pieces.
This file contains both a 23-slide PowerPoint and a matching flipbook which students will be able to use as reference for the remainder of the school year.
The PowerPoint contains the following format:
Slides 1-4: Introduction to "Show, Don't Tell" & explaining what the phrase means.
Slides 5-10: Showing Sentence or Telling Sentence
Two sentences are provided on each slide. Students must determine which sentence shows, and which sentence tells.
Slides 11-18: Focusing on Emotions when Showing
Sentence charts are providing for six emotions (nervous, happy, scared, angry, sad, & tired). Students consider what happens with their hands, heart, face, feet, and other body parts when they feel a certain emotion. They fill in their chart with related showing sentences.
Slides 19-23: Revising Telling Sentences Not Related to Emotions
Students revise four telling sentences to make them showing sentences.
Along with the PowerPoint, an 8-page FLIPBOOK is included in this file!
As students progress through Slides 11-23, they can record the sentences that appear in the PowerPoint in their own flipbook. Then, this flipbook becomes a valuable reference tool for students to use when they are writing independently for the rest of the school year.
