Deck the Halls

Descriptive writing and art transform our bulletin boards and serve as a wall-to-wall portfolio of student work - just in time for the holiday season.

A descriptive holiday was the topic of this assignment. Words and language  paint a detailed picture of a holiday experience.
It's been a busy first semester with lots of writing. Students are learning to write in descriptive mode. Descriptive writing is an art form. It's painting a word picture so the reader "sees" exactly what the writer is describing. Descriptive writing relies on the five senses to create a word picture. 
Students work through the writing process in order to help them become the best writers they can be. Clearly, that last stage - - publishing - - brings a smile.
