Product Description
This writing activity is designed to get students using more description and detail in their writing and oral speaking. It is also great to work on sequencing, listening skills and collaboration.

By using the mentor text, The Hallo-Weiner by Dav Pilkey, students will work to describe the main character, Oscar's, costume. They will then understand his troubles by thinking about the worst costume they have ever worn, and work to describe it.

Students will first draw their costume, then write a descriptive paper sequencing the steps to put it on, and then ending with giving it to another classmate and having them do a directed drawing with their description. The fun will come when they get to reveal their actual drawing to a partner and see how well they wrote their description.

All the resources needed to complete this project including a blank person diagram, sequence words anchor charts, a sentence patterning chart of language support, and final draft paper are included!

This is great fun for any time of the year, but especially around Halloween. This project is appropriate for kids from second to eighth grade!
