    **If you finished your writing assignment from yesterday, please begin to write this next assignment! This will take about 5 days to complete and type.**

    Estimated Time: 30 to 45 minutes over five days.  Pace yourself! Try to write one paragraph each day. Each sense (hear, smell, taste…) can be a separate paragraph. Don’t forget your opening and closing paragraphs too!

    Explanation of Activity/Assignment:  Practice skills you have learned over the course of the year--prewriting, drafting, revising and editing, and publishing.

    Quick Things to Know:  The five senses: hear, feel, smell, taste, see.  We just described spring using sensory details. (Ex:  I hear buzzing bees landing delicately on flowers as the sun kisses their fuzzy bodies!) Now, you get to use your senses to describe summer!  Have fun! Don’t forget to use awesome adjectives and vivid verbs too!


    1. Respond to the following prompt: Write a paragraph with sensory details to describe summer.  
    2. Create a rough draft and then revise and edit your writing.
    3. Type your draft into a word document and save it as "Sensory Details in Summer"

Go outside and write your kindness words on the sidewalk or driveway.  Do you have water and a paint brush? Go outside and use water to “paint” your kindness words on the driveway.  OR use anything you’d like to write kindness words! Just.be.kind.
