Using descriptive language, similies, metaphors, and adjectives in sentences is major difference between beginning writers and experienced writers. I love watching my students cross over that line with their writing skills!
My 5th graders loved this assignment, and I was very surprised with how descriptive, creative, and unique their writing can be when they are pushed just a little bit extra.
This resource is a great worksheet to help your students gain confidence in their writing skills. They love pairing writing with drawing whenever they can, which helps them visualize their words even more.
