Students practice adding interest to their writing by learning to add adjectives that add description to nouns. This is not a story companion, but only a game using the author's craft in the title of The Big Red Lollipop.
There is one practice sheet to do whole class to study how an adjective works with a noun. Then students can play an illustrating game to reinforce the connection between adjectives and nouns.
How to play: Students take 1 adjective and 1 noun card and draw the picture. For example, a "red" "lollipop". They don't write the labels on their picture, but after they have illustrated the word cards, they show the class and see if the class can guess the adjective and the noun. If they can't guess, the student can give a hint. Most of the combinations will be silly, but that makes it fun for the students.
This game can be played whole class, small group, or independently. There are 2 illustration sheets included for whole group (1 drawing space) or small group (2 drawing spaces).
There are 36 adjective cards and 36 noun cards in both black and white or color versions to be printed, cut, and laminated so the game can be replayed. For additional practice, you may want to give 2 adjective cards with 1 noun card and see what your students do with their illustrations.
