Accommodations:
 Advanced learners would write a sentence and draw a picture about their experience. Proficient learners would draw a picture and label nouns in their picture using inventive spelling. Intensive learners will draw a picture and dictate a sentence to the teacher.
Checking For Understanding:
 The teacher could have students sort pictures according to sense. For example, a picture of grapes could go under the taste or touch category.
