When it comes to writing, students must master the paragraph before moving on to longer pieces. This packet will help your students get a firm grasp on what makes a good paragraph, while satisfying their never-ending desire to write about what they want! Win-win!
This fantastic winter-themed descriptive writing planner can be self-guided, or done in class, but regardless, it gets students practicing not only using descriptive language and sensory details, but also helps them hone their skills writing topic sentences, and ensuring sentence flow. It also helps them understand the reason for multiple drafts, and includes revision and editing.
You will get a ready-to-use packet including the following exercises:
There are checklists throughout to keep students accountable! Please see preview for a better idea of what's on each page!
This packet also includes a separate sheet for peer revisions, if you wish to do that, and a sample paragraph formatted two ways--one large font to display on overhead/projector, and two-to-a -page if you want to print for student reference.
I have also included two final draft papers. One includes a reflection on the bottom, the other does not, and is a cleaner look, perhaps for display in your classroom.
When you purchase this product, you will also get a list of sensory words as a bonus!
