Worksheet Overview

You are going to think about using key words.

Key words are important words that help us concentrate on the important things we need to write about.


Look at this picture.


Here are some key words that describe the important parts in the picture. We have added adjectives to make them more interesting.

cold snow  mountain  blue sky  wooden cottage  fluffy clouds


We can now use these key words to help us write some detailed sentences about the picture.

There is a mountain that is covered in cold snow. There is a little wooden cottage with a white door and white windows. Behind the cottage there are lots of snow-covered trees. The clouds in the blue sky are fluffy.


Now, try and write your own descriptions using interesting key words
