The Now Empty Cage – William, Grade 7

This short descriptive piece is written by one of my grade 7 students. He has successfully described the cage and the guinea pigs that inhabited it, helping readers to vividly visualize the cage and the movements of the pigs. He has clearly described the shapes, the colors, the locations as well as the movements. Descriptive pieces are used in various writing assignments, including stories, personal narratives, persuasive essays, and speeches.
