Descriptive Writing (Grades 4-6)

Our Descriptive Writing lesson plan for grades 4-6 teaches students to develop the skills needed for descriptive writing. Students practice using the strategies taught in this lesson to enhance their writing.

Our Descriptive Writing lesson plan for grades 4-6 helps students develop the skills needed for descriptive writing. Students are asked to use both their creativity and their technical writing skills in order to write descriptive sentences, paragraphs, and even essays. Students work collaboratively on an assignment in which one child writes a detailed description of a scene or object and the other student draws it; this allows the students to see how much detail a reader can glean from their writing. Students are also asked to work independently to make boring descriptions more interesting.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to use precise words and phrases, descriptive details, and sensory language to convey experiences and events.

    Excellent worksheets

    The descriptive writing worksheets are easy and inspiring for my student. They really help her to apply descriptive writing techniques in her own writing.
