Focus on Adjectives
Adjectives are very important in writing so we will match all five senses with as much adjectives as possible. For example;
sight-pretty, beautiful, ugly, green, white, orange
smell-sweet, good, bad
feel-hard, soft, rough
taste-sweet, yummy, sour, bitter, nasty
We will eventually rule out the weak and unimaginative words for the more colorful ones.
Experience The Senses
This is an opportunity for us to gather as many sensory objects as possible to experience the senses at work. The key here is to describe an object using as many senses as is possible.
Writing With Sense
This is the actual writing or documenting of experiences. In this process thoughts become words and words fuse together into a cohesive piece. In other words, I say what I mean, I mean what I say. So, at this point there must be a definite change in behavior.
I have put some ideas down on paper to help with descriptive writing and it is FREE for the taking. It is suitable for kids from Kindergarten to Grade 1 depending on their working level.

Anyway I've got to go. Let's see how much I could accomplish. :)
