Having a hard time teaching the detail "show not tell" to your students?This is a difficult writer's craft for young children to grasp. I like to teach this detail using feelings/emotions as a springboard. I created these show not tell feeling posters as a visual tool for my students to use during writer's workshop. The feelings included are:
Each feeling poster includes 4 "show not tell" descriptors that students could use or expand on in their own writing. I also created a student poster which includes ALL of the show not tell feelings and descriptors. Students keep this poster in their writer's workshop folder to use as a reference for show not tell! Download the preview to see everything that's included! I hope this set of posters helps you better teach this tricky detail to your young writers! Happy teaching :)
I also have another pack in my store to help teach this writing detail to your students...
