Guess My Food


Figurski KIDDLES

(Reposted from Figurski Wiki February 4, 2011)

(Names are changed to protect the infamous.)

Writing KidsthIn English, my 3rd graders learned to write good paragraphs. They learned that when they use good, descriptive words, it makes their writing come alive. Their words can jump off of the page. They want their audiences to be able to see their words … like a movie. They want their readers to be able to make vivid pictures in their minds. It’s more fun reading that way.

They tried this skill out today with some riddles about a “Surprise Food.” They  chose any food they wanted. Then they had to describe the food using adjectives. They could tell what it looked like, what it smelled like, and what it tasted like. They could tell how it was cooked or where it grew. They were encouraged to provide as much description as they wanted, but their goal was to try to make me (Mrs. Figurski) think. They did a good job, but I was  definitely stumped on a few.  Go ahead and try it. See if you can figure out the riddles.
