Writing: Show Don’t Tell Practice Worksheets (Free Packet)

Today I have some writing practice pages to share with you about the concept, “Show Don’t Tell.” The kids and I are spending a number of days talking about this writing strategy. “Show Don’t Tell” helps the reader to experience the story by using descriptions, actions, thoughts, feelings, & emotions. Using this technique helps readers feel like they are right in the middle of the action! Here’s how I explained...

Now Earth Day is celebrated in more than 175 countries...

The kids bake a lot these days!    This is free if anyone...
