Show Don't Tell - Writing Target Skill
We are still following the Razzle Dazzle Writing book by Melissa Forney and today was the "Show don't tell" lesson for our writing books.
It is all about painting a picture with words, showing what is happening is much more interesting for the reader.
These photos we have stuck into our writing books to remind us to SHOW and NOT TELL.
We also did quite a bit at acting. It helped define exactly what we wanted to show in our piece of writing, for example; describing what your face would look like if your iguana had just got away, or you are drinking a warm hot chocolate on a chilly day.
It was very helpful I think.
