Sensory Chart Graphic Organizer

A graphic organizer for students to use when categorizing sensory details.

Sensory details are an important tool. Not only do they help us as writers be more descriptive, but they also help us as readers to visualize and comprehend a piece of text better.

Use this chart to help students organize sensory details they notice in a piece of text, or to brainstorm details they can include in their own writing.
