Descriptive Writing

We have been working on writing descriptions. The best descriptions make us imagine a picture in our heads. One great way to describe something is to use a simile! Today we described this scene, making sure we used some similes. Here are three examples of our writing today, look at all the WOW words!

- Bonnie

There was a really stunning lake. The lake was in a valley. The trees were as green as the grass.
