Using the 5 Senses in Reading and Writing

This lesson was inspired by Dr. Seuss' book "My Many Colored Days." It is a helpful part of the lesson plan, although you could do the lesson without it. Students think about how colors would look, sound, feel, taste, and smell. Students record their ideas on the Colors and 5 Senses Organizer. Taking the best of their ideas, students then write a color poem using the Color Poem Organizer. Writing the poem requires the use of metaphors and similes. #Wiki-TeacherLiveMarch10
