This SmartBoard file is a complete lesson to guide students through a writing prompt about Autumn using the 5 senses.
Included in slides:
Graphic organizer- for modeling and for students (parts of a paragraph)
Other Graphic Organizer- Instead of the parts of a paragraph, students may just use a web depending on ability/grade level
Personification- I always like to add a type of figurative language into poetry or descriptive paragraphs. There is a slide for a mini lesson giving examples and definitions.
Scoring guide- a rubric for how students earn points for this assignment.

This was used in my fourth grade classroom, but can be easily adapted to any elementary grade. My students love this writing prompt every year and it makes them excited for the holidays! I hope your students love it too :)
