Learning Objectives

Students should be able to write a straightforward story about one topic with relevant details.


  • Tell the students that they can draw and color a picture about anything that makes them happy today.
  • Let them have time for you to brainstorm some topics.
  • Provide them with several ideas such as animals, toys, games, favorite food if they are stuck and can’t think about anything.

Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling

  • Choose a topic of interest for your requirements.
  • Draw an image to go along with it. Show the learning students the way the drawing need not be perfect.
  • Demonstrate when it comes to students how you would choose words that describe your picture.
  • Make a list and write those words from the board.
  • Use 2-3 of the expressed words in a sentence.
  • Show the learning students the way the sentences relate with the image.

Gu >(15 minutes)

  • Instruct the students to consider several words that tell about the picture they drew.
  • Have them write the expressed words on lined paper.

Independent working time

  • Tell the students to consider sentences that tell about their pictures before they start writing.
  • Have students turn and communicate with an elbow partner to explain the thing that is very important to them orally using details that are relevant
  • Have them write sentences that are 1-2 the image.


  • Enrichment: Encourage advanced students to publish a paragraph about their picture. They may wish to add pictures that are additional writing, encourage them to take action.
  • Support: Struggling students may focus on correct spelling. Since this is beginning writing, encourage them to sound out words or phonetically write them. You are able to assist them.


  • Collect the papers.
  • Read the sentences. Check to ensure they match the picture and stayed on topic.
  • If students stayed on topic, they can independently write more.
  • Meet individually with students who may require help that is extra.
