Perspective Paragraphs

Students generate adjectives used to describe the main character (a pirate) after listening to Mem Fox's Tough Boris. In this adjective lesson, students help the teacher create a cluster/web in which the adjectives contributed by the students surround the word "pirate". The students are encouraged to imagine how Boris (the pirate) might look to the stow-away on the ship, and write a descriptive paragraph from this stow-away's point of view.

I am a first year homeschool mom. I found Lesson Planet and was impressed with the amount of resources that are available online! I have been able to find content that was age appropriate and relevant to the areas my 3 kids are studying. And knowing that these are plans created by teachers makes me confident in presenting the material to my children.
