Assessments::* Students can be assessed in the following ways: 1.
After the rules have been established, describe to the students that they are going to be divided into five cooperative groups.
Each group will be assigned a specific sense and given a bag or a box with their sense written on it.
Have students think of how much they use touch, taste, vision, hearing, and smelling in their every day lives.
These are the things that make things appealing to us, so they greatly help when trying to write a descriptive essay.10.
After a sentence for each sense has been written, have students combine the sentences to form a paragraph that is written on the board to serve as a visual of what descriptive writing should look like.
Remind the students that they don't even have to reveal what the object is.
If they do choose to reveal the object, let them know its more exciting to wait and reveal it at the end of their writing.18.
The last activity will be for students to demonstrate their understanding of this concept, so they will do descriptive writing on their own.19.
Explain the worksheets and how they are going to use them.20.
Next, pass out the Hershey's Kisses to each student (in a regular setting, make sure nobody is allergic to chocolate or whatever food you are using.)21.
