The idea with this writing is to inspire students to come up with creative new ways to describe common objects. For example:- Students will be asked to describe a common object in one word —“basketball.” Next, students will need to use two words to describe the object—“orange basketball.” Then, students will use three words—“new orange basketball.” In this way it continues until they have a short list of six or seven adjectives in front of the noun. Later they learn how to create a sentence using the description.  Once students get comfortable with describing objects, writing well becomes a part of their habit.
