Descriptive details placed into a paragraph describing an event, feeling, etc. "At first, I was nervous walking into my new home...." (Nervous is describing the feelings at first. This works if your name is like Nicole. first letter of your name is applied to the first descriptive word. relatively easy once you know what theyre asking for.)

A descriptive paragraph is a piece of writing that is intended to convey meaning to the reader through sensory details. This does not mean that a student should get a thesaurus to find 10 words that describe a sunset. A good writer will be able to use a few well-chosen words to help the reader have a level of familiarity that enables full comprehension, which is the desired end effect of reading.

More than one sentence in a a paragraph so maybe it means.
A sentence with an adjective starting with S describing Sky
A sentence with an adjective starting with K describing Sky
A sentence with an adjective starting with Y describing Sky

It means that you have to create a sentence or sentences using the letters of your name. My name is Kate so I would say for example from what i did last year in my english class:
Kind girl that likes to read
A series by the name of
Twilight. Even while
Eating popcorn.

I wrote something like this for my home work. I did not have to use my name though. I used my sisters name, which is Jacquelyn. For "J" I did Joyful, for "A" I did Always, for "C" I did Cat, for "Q" I did Quiet and so on. Then I wrote a paragraph using these words. This is some of the things I wrote.

Jacquelyn is Joyful and almost Always happy. Jacquelyn is a Cat lover and sometimes Quiet spoken.

This is really fun so I hope you in joy!
