Here is a sample of sensory imagery from students' descriptive essays that are now exhibited in the hallway. Enjoy the creativity of our students!

  • Ella –Tibba has a damp, brown nose surrounded by a blonde mustache.

  • Owen – Fey has green eyes, white whiskers, a pink nose, black ears with white insides and a fuzzy white muzzle.
  • Ed – Sooner’s ears are flaps of velvet hanging off the bolt. Her nose is a blob of wet Jell-o on the tip of a hard bony nose. Her torso is a giant sack of potatoes. Her bottom is a mound of hairy seal blubber.

  • Emerson – When people walk by, Oscar barks at them. When people come in, he creates pandemonium by leaping into the air and barking. His bark is an ear-splitting low woof, woof.
  • Nathaniel – When I smell the insides of my guitar, I breathe in the scent of a freshly cut-down tree. When I pick up my guitar, I feel the cool night air.
  • Sam – Finally, I can eat my food. I pick up the rough wooden chopsticks and take a piece of beef and pop it into my mouth,
  • Gillian – Ellie always comes in at night and lies down beside me, and I fall asleep to her rhythmic purr-purrr-purrr-purrr.
  • Shane - When I was about five years old, my attic was a place of Saturday fun and everyday pillow fights with the four-foot tall teddy bear who rested in the far left corner of the attic.
  • Karl – Zooie will shoot around our house like a Porsche 911 to get us to play with him; he also will turn on his back and writhe around like a fish out of water to get our attention.
  • Mara – I feel the icy, cold water crash against my feet, with the salty wind lightly blowing my hair to the side.
  • Lillian – When I am at the Lundstrum Center, I feel like I’m walking through fire; I get hot and cool as I move through the room.

  • Ted – The empty glass is coated with the cloudy residue of milk, like a glass of fog. Cookie crumbs stick to its inside.
  • Ayan – Abdirhrman's hair is the color of black rock, his eyes are the color of chocolate and skin the color of caramel. He smells like my dad’s cologne.
  • Dylan – When I play my cello I feel like someone injected energy into me.
