Teaching writing to young students can be challenging to say the least. However, don’t give up. You can teach your students how write using sensory details. Start with these 20 task cards. They ask your students to identify which one of the 5 senses is used in each sentence.
These easy exercises will get your lower elementary students to think about writing using their senses. From there, you can introduce descriptive writing.
I recommend printing these cards off on cardstock and laminating them. This way you can use them over and over again. You can use these cards as they are or place them on book rings to help keep them organized. Next, provide students with the answer key sheet. Now, you are all set.
