PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you need a great text for teaching Imagery and Visualizing, this is the book and lesson plan for you!
Karen Hesse uses amazing descriptive language (adjectives, similes, and metaphors) in her book "Come On, Rain!" to create imagery that naturally encourages visualizing. Through her expert use of adjectives, similes and metaphors, Hesse truly makes readers feel as if they are right there in the story. By activating the 5 senses with adjectives and clever comparisons, Hesse engages readers throughout the entire story.
This lesson plan includes mini lessons on what adjectives, similes and metaphors are, as well as how this author uses them to draw her readers into her book.
The plan also pulls many examples of each of these descriptive word types from the text, making it easy and fun to model and then lead students into guided practice. Graphic organizers are included to help the class record ideas and thinking about the descriptive language used in the text.
This plan will help you teach students about word types and authors craft as they learn the power of word choice in stories.
This plan will take several mini lessons to complete. It could be considered a mini unit!
