Levelled activities and handouts teach your students the difference between showing and telling. You can use the drawing activity as a whole class, in a centre or with a partner. Students will love the levelled drawing activity (easy, intermediate, and advanced) which highlights how effective showing is. Once they make this realization, they'll want to try it out in their own writing. They'll have the chance to try out showing instead of telling with partners in a levelled writing activity as they gain confidence while practising showing. There are 3 levels of this writing activity too. So, there is something for everyone in your classroom. Showing is such an important writing skill. Before long, your students will be showing instead of telling in all of their writing. You can always refer them to the handout as a gentle yet effective reminder to show instead of tell.
