Product Description
These classroom essentials contain 120 different adjective cards from 10 different adjective categories plus word banks listing tons of different adjectives for each category. This is one adjective set with endless possibilities for teaching – you are not bound by ‘one game only’… own your teaching style with these flexible supports! Great for class use, SLPs, Resource Room and with RTI.

The purpose of this product is to develop vocabulary, understanding and use of adjectives in spoken language and writing through easy to comprehend visuals. Specific language and writing activity ideas are included so that you can see how easy this set is to weave into your teaching. You can use them all year round and adapt to any theme, topic, unit or season. These can be especially useful in special education settings.


Adjective Category Cards: There are 12 picture cards for each category, 120 cards in total for color, shape, size, appearance, number, touch, taste, time, sound and feelings.
Adjective Word Banks: Contain word lists for each of the 10 categories (e.g. for ‘Size’ the list includes words such as huge, gigantic, small, tiny, puny).
Describing List: This is a simple visual scaffold that lists the categories – great for carryover and generalization when students have a grasp of the vocabulary.
Activity Ideas: A range of different ideas and fun games for expressive and receptive language as well as written language. Go on an adjective treasure hunt using 'touch' adjectives, do an 'adjective swap' when reading or maybe make a silly sentence using 3 random adjective cards (plus MUCH more). A range of Common Core Standards are listed, with particular emphasis on K-2 Language and Speaking & Listening streams.
