This Super Descriptive Writing Pack is great for the beginning of the school year. I have included lists of juicy color words, texture words, and size words. I used these words to create visuals for my writers. I went to Home Depot or Lowes to get paint sample cards for free to create my juicy color words visual. I have pictures at the end of the pack for you to see. I created two, large hands to show what texture words are with different items for children to feel and the texture words that describe them.For the size words visual, I made a bubble map of the different size words that are included in the pack.
The Super Descriptive Writing Pack includes with purchase:
A Coloring and Describing activity
A Guess Who activity
A Show-Don't-Tell activity
Lists of juicy color words, texture words, and size words ready to be printed and cut
Pictures of my actual visuals with the lists of words put to use
