Underline the verbs in each sentence. If it is an action verb, write an "A" next to it. If it is a linking verb, write "V" next to it. Circle adverbs.
Return to your groups - the same ones we were in last week with the "Witch" stories.
I'll give you FIVE minutes in your groups to refresh your memory of what you were doing.
Then, the groups that read the same story will meet to choose the best summary and evaluation as well two speakers.
Finally, each group will fill out a "contrast and analyze" page for each of the two other stories. You don't have to complete one for your own story.
Back to work on our Witchfinder Jigsaw
First, let me provide you some essential materials. You will need:
1. Show Don't Tell Packet
2. Useful words packet
Today, we will practice the skill of "SHOWING" rather than "TELLING." When you're called, please go to the table and get one each of either markers or colored pencils: red, orange, yellow, purple, blue, green, brown, black.
Now, take the white paper I've handed you and fold it in half this way (watch my demonstration so you don't fold it the wrong way.)
Ok, now listen carefully while I read this description of a monster. Draw the monster while I read. I will read the description multiple times.
Monster Madness continued
Now, everyone hold up the picture he or she drew. What do you notice about the pictures? What can you infer about the written description based on the pictures?
Now, on the other side of the paper, you will do the same thing with a different description. Listen carefully while I read the description aloud multiple times. Draw the monster the way you picture it based on the description.
Now, everyone hold up the picture he or she drew. What do you notice about these pictures? How do they compare to the last set of monsters? What can you infer about the description based on the drawings? What comparisons can you draw between the descriptions?
"While seeking revenge, dig two graves - one for yourself."
Remember, this week's quotes will be on revenge. We will try to distinguish between justice and revenge. For today, choose one.
1. Raymond ran next to the fence.
2. Squeaky was the fastest girl in town.
3. Lemonade tastes sour and sweet.
4. The little skunk hesitantly tastes the clover.
5. The monkeys wildly share the bananas.
6. The bananas are bright yellow.
7. Jessica seems very cantankerous today.
8. The Smiths believe in martians.
Now, we'll create our own monsters. Start by writing a detailed, vivid description of your monster. Use the packet you received earlier to help you. Next, draw your monster based on your description. Don't let others see what you've drawn.
When we finish our drawings, we will then switch descriptions and have a partner draw the monster you described. You will draw the monster they described. Then, we'll compare to see how well you described what you saw in your mind.
