Show What your Mind Sees

Students develop a descriptive paragraph and organize their ideas using a graphic organizer that differentiates between a "telling" and a "showing" sentence. In this writing instructional activity, students visualize the traits of the main character in the book The Twits by Roald Dahl. Using the writing style exemplified in this book as a model, students organize their ideas by determining if their "telling" sentence would be best as a first, middle, or last sentence.
