Model
1. Read Mouse Loves School by Lauren Thompson to the class. Read each description to the class without showing the illustrations. Encourage the class to guess what objects are being described by listening to the descriptive words, or adjectives. Reveal the illustrations after students have made guesses. Discuss how adjectives create a mental picture for readers.
Guide
2. Allow students to
explore the
classroom using
Twist, viewing
magnified images
of different objects.
Discuss how the
magnified images
differ from those
we see with the
naked eye. Have
students use creative adjectives to describe these common objects.

3. Have each student use Twist to take a magnified photo of a classroom object then print the photo. Have each student write a
sentence about his
or her photo on
an index card using
creative adjectives.

4. Place the cards
and photos in
random order in a
classroom center.
Have groups of
students work
together to match
the photos to the
correct description.
Assess
5. Collect student sentences. Assess the sentences using the attached rubric. Download students' work to your computer and include it in students' digital portfolios or upload to your website to share with families.

6. Assign a student group to each season. Have students take photos with Twist of objects that are characteristic of each season, print the photos, and write descriptive sentences for each photo.
