Product Description
After I have spent a few lessons teaching imagery, I LOVE to create examples of imagery with the free paint chips that you can nab at any home-improvement store! For this lesson, you will need free paint chips (I prefer the ones that have 4 shades). After our warm-up, I like to ask the students "Why do authors use sensory language?" and "How does it shape their writing?" We usually discuss their responses for a few minutes before reading "The Storm". We read the poem once and on the second reading I ask them to color code the sentences that use sensory language. We then discuss which sentences appeal to which sense. As a closing activity (and my favorite part!), we choose our paint chips and create our example sentences based on our associations with our chosen color. I pass around Sharpies once everyone finishes drafting their senses. I love to hang these up around the room as they add a pop of color!
