Are you looking for a way for your students to revise and add to their writing? Here is a great way to get your kids moving and excited about revising their papers.

After my students have written a draft, or created a planning sheet, I tell them to find 3 places where the character experienced a strong emotion, and I give examples. They put stars on their drafts to show where.

Then, outside of their stories, we practice what some of these emotions look like. They are to focus on the character’s face, body, and voice. I act out being scared and ask what emotion it was. I ask them how they knew (what did they see and hear from me).

This writing resource provides a great place for your kids to write their examples and show you that are able to revise their writing to include character's emotions.

This Show Not Tell writing resource is a PowerPoint that includes a link for Google Slides, perfect for virtual learning, homework, and in class online practice. It's great to add to an online journal.
