Welcome to my 2020 Blogging A-Z April Challenge. Each day, I will post a brief Journal On! Daily Writers’ Workshops lesson and prompt. Teachers, parents, and students may use the material to encourage daily writing practice, spark insight, and embrace mindful reflection.
Color words illustrate the images you are describing. Colors set a mood, spring objects and places into the forefront, and add to the word-painting on the page. Adding color descriptions explains the condition of an object, feelings, and scenes. There is so much variety in one color. The yellow I am thinking of is probably not the same shade of yellow as your yellow. Words like bright, pale, somber give color added depth. Yellow, a simple primary color, provides us a treasure trove of journaling practice.
Until tomorrow, Everyone.
