Writing: Show, Don't Tell: Pushing Up the Sky

In this writing skills activity, students read the story Pushing Up the Sky and use the graphic organizer to convert the telling statement into a descriptive showing statement. Students list examples of the details from the story. Students then think of an event from a myth they have written and listing descriptive details that help show the readers the event. Students use their web to write a descriptive paragraph about the event.

When plans are needed, and time is short, I begin here for help from my colleagues. The framework of lessons, excellent worksheets, and multimedia presentations has proved extremely helpful.
