Writing and photography activity. Students choose the best part of them and describe what they love. Great for the beginning of the year to get to know students. Must cultivate an appropriate classroom climate first.
Writing The teacher will hand out paper and have each student draw a haunted house. Then, each student will create a newspaper add to sell the haunted house they drew as well as create a home listing for their house.
Students design a monster and then practice descriptive writing. Perfect writing project for the Halloween season. Could have kids read aloud and have other students draw what they hear? Practice descriptions and visualization.
Writing Pin Students will fold their paper 4 times. The first fold will have a simple sentence and then each fold they will expand the sentence such as adding an adjective. This way they are learning to be more descriptive writers.
Fun Descriptive Writing Activity - bring in an object for them to describe! Fourth graders still need those simple reminders and engaging activities to get them to describe ideas more in their writing pieces!
