Show Don't Tell Mini-Lesson- Razzle Dazzle

I taught a few mini-lessons from Razzle Dazzle Writing last week.    The book is kid and teacher friendly and contains many printables.   I have never been so excited to teach writing!
One of the lessons we did was "Show, Don't Tell."  I projected the following page on the board.  We read and discussed their examples.

Here are samples of the paragraphs my children wrote:


  1. I have used this book for years, and it's one of my favorites! Great resources!

  2. OMG! I teach from this book too. I have done so many of these lessons in my classroom. It's a wonderful book full of great resources. What I truly love is how kid-friendly it is. Have you ever seen Melissa Forney in person?
    I believe I have seen her like 4 times last year and she is so amazing and full of wonderful of ideas that stir up the imagination. Are there any other books you teach writing from?
