Example of a Description of Action

Read the descriptive paragraph (included) with your middle schoolers, and have them study the stylistic elements included. They'll look for vivid verbs, alliteration, assonance, similes, and personification. Before writers craft their own paragraph, walk them through the example leads on the last page.Then, have learners write a descriptive paragraph of their own. There's a small chart for them to evaluate their writing, and there's even space for a peer and the teacher to comment as well!

I am in my last year of graduate school, and having to do observation, and student teaching has been great. Lesson Planet was one of the sites mentioned one day, since then I've gain so many new creative ideas through the lessons. Thank you Lesson Planet
