Descriptive sentences give readers a vivid image and enable them to imagine a scene clearly. To write descriptively, you must first visualize the scene yourself and write what you see, hear, feel, touch, and smell.
Directions: Use descriptive sentences to write about the following topics.
- Imagine you are walking outside. A spring storm is coming. Describe for your classmates what you see, hear, smell, taste, and touch.
- Imagine you are on a magic carpet that takes you anywhere you choose. Think about where you would go and what you might do. Write a story about your adventure.
- You are home babysitting your little brother. When you go out to get the paper, the door shuts and locks. Your baby brother is alone inside. Tell what you do.
- Your little brother or sister is sick and can't sleep. Tell him/her a story that will help him/her go to sleep.
