Welcome to My Room is a creative way to teach descriptive writing in your classroom. Your students will be writing about their room in detail as if they are the tour guide giving the reader a tour of their room. Some students like to use their imaginations and create a messy room while others describe their room as is. The title page is a door that they illustrate to include pictures on each door panel of what the reader might find in their room.
Included in this packet are two sample colored doors, the final copy paper to write on, the door page to be used as the title page, a sample fifth grader story and the cover of a book that I use to inspire creativity : Pigsty by Mark Teague.
*** YOU DO NOT NEED TO PURCHASE THE BOOK IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THE WRITING. It just enhances the lesson.
