I love this writing lesson to teach the importance of incorporating PLENTY of details into our writing pieces to help the reader visualize. Students can only draw what they heard me read in each snowman story in the boxes. Snowman 1 Story: hardly any details, Snowman 2 Story: a little bit of detail, Snowman 3 Story: plenty of detail, Snowman 4 Story: PACKED with details! Students decorated their own "snowman 4", and created their own story packed with TONS of detail to describe it! I hope your students love this writing activity as much as mine did. This is something that can always be referred back to throughout the year as a reminder of the importance of details in writing.
