Dream House Descriptive Essays

Students practiced their descriptive writing skills by describing their "dream house" using imagery, similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia, personification, and more!  Students began by brainstorming to organize their essays.  Then, students typed away on their netbooks using the best detail, figures and speech, sentence variety, etc. to help the reader visualize their dream house.  Students encouraged each other with detail, some even exceeding 1,000 words!  Hooray writers!  Miss Lukins "monitored" their writing using "DYKNOW Monitor" (classroom management software) and opened chat for students to ask her questions, while she wrote encouraging messages back to students.  See creative imaginations transformed into writing in the images below!
