This adjective/noun activity incorporates cut and paste, writing with adjectives, identifying adjectives,and reading adjectives in context.
Many students, especially low functioning readers, need extra encouragement to use description when they write. This product has a cut/paste activity that will seem to kids almost like a game and will work well for student’s interactive notebooks.
After students have created their “cones”, the words from the cones can then be used to create sentences with descriptive details. I added an identification page for adjectives and a mini-story page for kids to find and use adjectives.
Explain to students that there are several noun-adjective combinations possible and that they should try to find the ones that are the best matches for the cut and paste.
NEW: I re-created the cut and paste, added ESL Insights, core standards, and an adjective poster.
Use frequently occurring adjectives
Sort words into categories (e.g., colors, clothing) to gain a sense of the concepts the categories represent.
Use adjectives and adverbs, and choose between them depending on what is to be modified.
Distinguish shades of meaning among closely related verbs (e.g., toss, throw, hurl) and closely related adjectives (e.g., thin, slender, skinny, scrawny).
Use words and phrases acquired through conversations, reading and being read to, and responding to texts, including using adjectives and adverbs to describe (e.g., When other kids are happy that makes me happy)
