PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In What Mess? by Tom Lichtenheld, a young boy’s room is described from two perspectives: his parents’ and his own. As such, it is an ideal piece to discuss point of view and how a piece changes when the point of view shifts from one person to another. In addition, Tom Lichtenheld uses sensory detail to thoroughly catalog the sights, sounds, smells, textures, and tastes present in the young boy’s room.

After reading and discussing the story, students create a lapbook by completing a series of activities to reinforce the concept of sensory detail and to solidify its importance in creating a vivid picture in the reader’s mind. To culminate the unit, students will write their own descriptive piece, focusing on point of view and sensory detail. The sensory detail lap book is a resource we return to frequently as we read and write other descriptive pieces.

This lapbook can also be used as part of a series that creates a writing toolbox for students. Each lesson serves as an interactive tool, perfect for test prep review and for parent conferences. Each lesson also focuses on specific writing traits and includes a student-tested writing project that exposes students to different writing genres. The additional materials necessary to create this “tool” are minimal: either a file folder or a piece of construction paper and some glue are all you need; we have provided the rest!
