Adjectives

I went looking for a few lessons on adjectives for this week and I wanted to share with you a couple of great ones I found from Babbling Abby. First, I purchased her popcorn adjective lesson from TPT. I love how she brings in the 5 senses with this lesson and makes learning about adjectives so hands on! Its' only $4.50 and well worth it's price.

Abby also has an adjective lesson as her most recent blog post. The lesson uses a large box of Crayola crayons to teach color word adjectives.Abby has free downloads for the graph labels and the student recording sheet on her blog.





Comment below if you have other great ideas for teaching adjectives.

I have some ideas on my blog! One is "adjective eggs" and the other uses the book 'Many Luscious Lollipops.' Look around under "Phonics" and you will see them.

Love this! We're just wrapping up our color days {mini themes!} and were discussing doing a big wrap-up with all of the colors. This will be a great activity to get them thinking up NEW colors!

The book "That Dog is Mine!" is perfect for adjectives. It is by Rick Walton. It is a great way to show the kids how an adjective helps the reader get a better picture in their head.

We made a flower. In the middle we wrote the word spring, on each petal we wrote a different word to describe the season of spring. They had a great time coming up with the words! Lots of fun.

*new follower...great blog...I'm over at starnesintn.blogspot.com, not a lot of education to it, but I'm looking to do more with that in the future.

On Monday I did popcorn adjectives Abby had posted on her blog. I'm going to try out the crayola crayon activity tomorrow.

I just did a lesson today where kids brainstormed adjectives for rain and rainbows. They picked one to make and created a cloud. Students listed their adjectives on the cloud and added streamers if they chose rainbow and raindrops if they chose rain.
