I CAN use precise language and vocabulary in my writing to help readers understand my topic more clearly. 

I CAN write a short narrative using descriptive details and language. 

The students will be using a visual writing prompt and their recent knowledge from the descriptive writing unit to complete this short assignment/writing warm up. The students are asked to stick to the prompt and to fill the short narrative with descriptive details and language to bring the piece of writing to life for the readers.
