In writing we have been discussing how writers use words to help readers visualize what is happening in the text. We have discussed how we use "wow" words in our writing to paint pictures in a reader's mind.
We practiced painting word pictures by writing a poem about spring.
On day two we revisited our poems and revised them by adding on details at the end of each line. We added a verb and a "where","when", or "how".
On day three, we revisited the same poem and discussed adding adjectives and other descriptors to our poems. We revised our poems by "pushing in" a word right before our noun.
And-that is how we know it is spring!
