When we write stories, we use descriptive language to capture our reader’s attention. Using our 5 senses helps others to visualize our story. Using photographs helps in developing rich language to describe situations or things.
I have created a sampler that has 2 photographs and titles. This is part of a larger package of 11 photographs. For the sampler, I have included a black and white version as well. Here is one of the images. Below the image I have given a explanation of what to do with it. To get your free sampler, click here or on the sampler image below.
Look at the picture at the top of the page and the title for the story. Using your
5 senses, write a description of the picture.
Imagine that your reader cannot see the picture and you must paint a picture
in his mind with your words.
The pictures at the bottom of the page are there to remind you to think of
all the senses when choosing your describing words. Some senses
might not work with some pictures.
If you are interested in seeing to full product, click on the image below. I also have one that uses clipart images instead of photographs. It includes colored and black and white versions.
Hopefully your students will begin to create more descriptive stories as they use the 5 senses. I know it helped mine to do so.
