Product Description
Helping students understand the idea of “Show, Don’t Tell” requires that they start thinking of their senses. For each idea, they need to be thinking about what it feels like, smells like, tastes like, looks likes, and sounds like. This will help children gather words that will begin to “Show, Don’t Tell.”

Strengthening the verbs make the verbs more effective and powerful.
This is the second strategy lesson included in this packet.

A third way to teach "Show, Don't Tell" is to play Emotion Charades. In addition to the charades they will write about an emotion and then share that to see if the class can guess their emotion. A class book of writing and photos is a natural conclusion to this activity.

Another "Ready to Use tomorrow" activity packet provided by the Original Gadget Girl, Kathy Cothran.
