Cooper First Graders Get 'Descriptive'

The first graders in Nancy Opitz's classroom at Cooper Elementary School recently discovered the effect good descriptive writing can have on readers when they applied their newly learned writing skills. Each student wrote a descriptive paragraph about an unusual creature and then drew a picture of the creature that matched the artistic characteristics listed in the paragraph. The students then read their paragraphs to older students visiting their classroom who were then asked to match key descriptive qualities in the paragraphs to those in the drawings.
