Writing Assignment Description:
A three year old student in a Pre-K class at Santa Fe School for the Arts and Sciences in Santa Fe, New Mexico dictated this description to his teacher.
The author cannot physically write a description yet as he is too young, but he is able to dictate a rich description of his hands to his teacher. A photo by another student accompanies the written piece.
How This Writing Can Be Useful:
- Uses figurative language – metaphor – thoughtfully (e.g., comparing the color of his palms to ice cream, the back of his hands to chocolate)
- Strong vocabulary and details, with many verbs describing the uses of his hands (e.g. reaching, pulling, touching, painting)
- Beautiful, poignant closing
