Use precise words and phrases

In this lesson, students practice using precise words and phrases in a draft about a boy enjoying his favorite breakfast with a focus on using descriptive details. A video models the thought process writers use to apply the targeted skill and improve their draft. The video prompts students to pause periodically and interact with the items on the Student Practice Sheet.
