Using Descriptive Words

Second graders focus on how descriptive words help them see, feel, and hear a story better. They listen to a read aloud of Angela Johnson's, "The Leaving Morning," while giving a thumbs up signal each time they hear a "sense or how" word. Next, they make a class list of describing words and add them to sentence. Finally, they write descriptive sentences in their writer's notebooks.
