My Day at the Park Lesson

My Day at the Park Lesson

Writing paragraphs with details turns from a laborious task into a labor of love as students first enact a sequence of events that happened at the park and then gloriously add colorful details to paint a picture (show not tell) about their day at the park.  First we act, then we write…the perfect companions.
