Descriptive Writing

We have been working on our writing to make it more descriptive. We used our senses to describe a scene at the beach and our aim was to let the reader know where we were without actually telling them. This writing technique is called “Show, don’t tell”

We know our readers are smart and can infer our meaning without us having to explain every single detail!

Here are some of our introductions. How do you think we went?

Did we achieve our aim of “Show, Don’t Tell”? Which senses can you see being used in these introductions? We also had to use a special writing technique called onomatopoeia. Can you find it in our introductions?
