A had to write about Neuschwanstein Castle, using description to capture how "spectacular" it is. Here is her spectacular:
The castle is surrounded by trees.
It is in the country.
There are more than 6 stories.
It is on a beautiful mountain.
I felt this was lacking the "spectacular", so I had her dictate some adjectives to me.
The spectacular castle sat on an amazing mountain.
The wonderful mountain was filled with tall trees.
The pretty castle was in the beautiful country.
The enormous castle had more than 6 spacious stories.
I knew this assignment would be stretching her a bit, because she is a very straightforward, non-fluff person. She's my yes-no, black-white learner.
