5 Senses Stories Using Photographs

Do your students find descriptive writing difficult? Using photographs and the five senses when writing is a great way to add more detail and develop descriptive writing.

Here is a set of 11 descriptive writing templates with photographs and the symbols for the 5 senses.

The purpose of this product is to help develop descriptive writing using the five senses.

Each page has a photograph and a title. It also has images that represent the 5 senses at the bottom as a reminder to think about using all 5 senses where possible.

The prompt I use is: Imagine the reader can’t see the picture. Think about the details in the picture and use descriptive language to paint images in the reader’s mind.

Note: The photos are actual photographs from my collection. One of the images is a painting done by my daughter that was then photographed.
