Yesterday we did some "Digital Quickwrites". In today's class we are going to expand on this work, BUT . . . We are going to use the prompts to help us climb into the image and tell the story. How? I'm glad you asked! Let me tell you a little bit about our good friend imagery.
Visual- Words or phrases that appeal to our sense of sight. These words could describe color, shape, light and darkness.
Auditory- Words or phrases that appeal to our sense of sound. Examples: Snap, scrape, static.
Kinesthetic- Words or phases that appeal to our sense of touch/feel. Examples: rough, pimpled, jagged
Smell- Words or phrases the appeal to our sense of smell. Examples: reek, aroma, stench

Your turn! Lets use this prompt to help you write and imagery filled paragraph:
