A Fantastic Descriptive Writing Activity! 

Have you seen our “You Write It” activity? If not, you’re in for a treat. It’s all about descriptive writing, and we can’t wait for you to try it with your class.

Here’s the scoop: We give your students a paragraph full of weak descriptions. Your students must jazz up the writing with sensory details, figurative language, and powerful verbs and adjectives. The activity is scaffolded but leaves room for your students to be creative.   

As always, we’ve created a suite of support materials to help you—including a model text and a lower-level version of the activity. Find these materials and more at Scope Online.

As with so many aspects of Scope, the inspiration for this activity came from you! Many of you have written to us asking for additional support with descriptive writing. Thank you for reaching out. And keep the suggestions coming!
