Very descriptive writing



Keywords: very descriptive writing
Description: The primary purpose of descriptive writing is to describe a person, place or thing in such a way that a picture is formed in the reader's mind. Capturing an event through descriptive writing involves paying close attention to the details by using all of your five senses. Teaching students to write more descriptively will improve their writing by making it more interesting and engaging to read.

  • It will help your students' writing be more interesting and full of details
  • It encourages students to use new vocabulary words
  • It can help students clarify their understanding of new subject matter material
  • Develop descriptive writing skill through modeling and the sharing of quality literature full of descriptive writing.
  • Include lessons such as the ones listed below throughout the year.
  • Call students' attention to interesting, descriptive word choices in classroom writing.
  1. Good descriptive writing includes many vivid sensory details that paint a picture and appeals to all of the reader's senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste when appropriate. Descriptive writing may also paint pictures of the feelings the person, place or thing invokes in the writer. Watch a teacher use a five senses graphic organizer as a planning strategy for descriptive writing
  2. Good descriptive writing often makes use of figurative language such as analogies, similes and metaphors to help paint the picture in the reader's mind.
  3. Good descriptive writing uses precise language. General adjectives, nouns, and passive verbs do not have a place in good descriptive writing. Use specific adjectives and nouns and strong action verbs to give life to the picture you are painting in the reader's mind.
  4. Good descriptive writing is organized. Some ways to organize descriptive writing include: chronological (time), spatial (location), and order of importance. When describing a person, you might begin with a physical description, followed by how that person thinks, feels and acts.
