Take a look at this quick descriptive writing activity.  If your students struggle with adding description to their writing, this activity will help.

It includes a mentor text that students will analyze — plus a graphic organizer word bank.

Your students will:

  • analyze a mentor text
  • create a descriptive word bank to use in their writing

You’ll love:

  • the opportunity to discuss with your students what descriptive writing is and what it does
  • a quick done-for-you lesson
  • mentor text that you’ll refer to all year
  • the graphic organizer word bank — you’ll use that all year as well!

Students often struggle when we ask them to add description to their writing.  This quick descriptive writing activity will give them a real example of how description makes a piece of writing come to life.

The mentor text will be something you’ll come back to again and again throughout the year to teach more than just descriptive writing (isn’t that why we love mentor texts?!).

This print resource has two activities along with an answer key.

Perfect for:

  • writing workshop
  • tutoring
  • mini lessons
  • reteaching
  • sub plans

Ready to use today to get your students to first understand what descriptive writing is, and then how to add it to their own writing.

A win-win!
