This adjectives file folder game will help you use your five senses to describe an object. These adjective games are great for teaching a child how to use descriptive vocabulary when talking about an object. Picture representations of the adjectives will help children with language delays.
Adjective Games: How to Play
1. Pick an object. Have your child pick any object in the room to talk about or choose from a bag of objects that you have pre-selected.
2. Ask your child to describe the object in whatever ways that he can. Ask him to tell you every-thing he can think of about that object.
3. Next, get out this game board. Open it up and explain how we can describe things using all of our five senses. Get out the cards and separate them by sense (they are color coded).
4. Go through each set (group them on rings if that helps) and decide which one(s) fits the object you have selected. Example: Go through the color deck and pick the color that best matches the object. Take that color off the ring and Velcro it to the board.
5. Go through each set until you have all of the applicable descriptors on the board. Now, have your child describe the object again using all of the great vocabulary he has just practiced.
