Our student teacher, Miss Moss, engaged the students in a mini-unit about descriptive writing. She began with identifying nouns, verbs, and adjectives. Students then engaged in a reading of “I Need My Monster”. This mentor text is rich in descriptive sentences, using interesting adjectives and verbs.
Then, it was time for students to write. They began the writing process with a brainstorm web of ideas of their own imaginary monster. Next, they organized their ideas using a graphic organizer. Then, they drafted their paragraphs on a Google slide and used the success criteria to revise and edit.
The last step was to use AI technology to generate a photo of their monsters based on their writing.
Thanks, Miss Moss, for this fun, engaging writing project!
