Leap Into Literacy 4th Grade
Looking Ahead to Poetry
This exercise adapted from Georgia Heard suggests a technique to see things in more depth and detail. Using a two column exercise, write an ordinary word of what you see in your mind on the left side of the paper, then place a more detailed description of what you are "seeing" on the right side. The example on the right is taken from words collected outside during recess.
