Writer’s Workshop Mini-Lesson Plan
Lesson Focus: Descriptive Language
Introduction: Today we will read a book called Mrs. Katzand Tush by Patricia Polacco. Listen for adjectives. Remember that adjectives are words that describe a noun. Make a list of adjectives as you listen to the story.
Teaching: Adjectives help paint word pictures. They describe nouns in detail.
Active Involvement: Students listen to the story and record adjectives and descriptive phrases.
Applying the Skills or Strategy: Generate “dull” sentences on chart paper. Students take the dull sentences and rewrite them adding adjectives.
