This year our writing curriculum will include the Step Up to Writing program with a focus on descriptive writing. A descriptive essay describes a person, object, or event so vividly that the reader feels like he/she could reach out and touch it. Descriptive writing paints a picture.
To help students understand the notion of vivid description, they started the year writing a brief description of a person - a person they know quite well - a self-portrait.
Parents, you will want to check out our bulletin board at the open house. Students are excited to share their first writing piece.
A shout out to Mrs. Barbro for sharing this art lesson over at her blog Art Lessons for Kids.
