Describe a Setting
Welcome, teachers and homeschoolers! We have an exciting resource to share with you that will engage your year 1 and year 2 students in the wonderful world of descriptive writing. We're thrilled to introduce you to our free writing worksheets called "Describe the Setting," specially designed to enhance your students' descriptive skills.
These worksheets provide a fantastic opportunity for young learners to explore and develop their descriptive writing abilities. Each worksheet features a captivating picture of a setting, such as a beach, a forest, or a backyard. The goal is to encourage students to use their five senses to vividly describe the scene before them.
Here's how it works: students will be prompted to engage their senses and fill in a table beneath the picture. They'll describe what they see, hear, smell, feel, and even taste within the setting. For instance, if the picture depicts a beach, students might jot down that they can see waves crashing, hear the rhythmic sound of the waves, smell the salty ocean breeze, feel the soft sand beneath their toes, and even taste the saltiness of the water.
We understand that each classroom has unique needs, which is why we've provided two versions of each worksheet: a black and white copy and a coloured copy. This gives you the flexibility to choose the option that best suits your preferences or printing capabilities. You can easily download the worksheets by clicking on the button at the bottom of this page.
