Homework: Sensory Language

This week in class we started to unpack writing seeds by using sensory language (what we see, hear, feel, taste, smell, wonder and imagine).

For this week’s homework, you will use the image below. Imagine that is you standing on the lighthouse.

– Write down at least 5 things that you see.

– Write 5 things you would be feeling.

– Write 3 things you would be able to hear.

Try and use adjectives to help your descriptive writing and see if you can use a simile.image
