This resource was an absolute delight to create! It includes many hands-on, interactive lessons and activities to teach or reinforce the concept of adjectives to your students. It revolves around a monster theme, which your students will absolutely love!
Included in this resource are the following:
~Adjectives Anchor Chart Poster
~Adjective Journal: Students will keep this adjective journal, split into categories. This forces them to think more about the word types and choices they use while trying to spice up their writing.
~My Pet Monster Rock: Launch your adjective unit with this fun craftivity! Students will create their own pet rock, using a real rock or printable ones I've included. They'll decorate it to look like a monster and then write in a mini-book all about their monster rock using adjectives. What fun!
~Whole Group Sorting Lesson: Each student is given a word card and asked to post it on its category type poster. Review when all students have posted their words. Great time to discuss adjectives and their categories.
~Guess Who? Monster Activity: Students are put into groups and given a kid monster poster. Their group must describe it using adjectives. When all groups are done, you read the descriptions and see if the students can guess which kid monster is being described.
~Taboo Game: Played like the traditional Taboo game, students describe a noun to the others without using the Taboo Words in their descriptions. Fun game for the whole group!
~What's the Word? Board Game: In this cute board game, students are given adjectives and must provide a noun that fits the adjective. First player to the finish is the winner.
~Various Printables: A few printables are provided for extra practice throughout the unit.
~Monster Craftivity: Students decorate their monster template and then describe it using adjectives. So, so cute!
~Adjective Unit Assessment: A quick one-page assessment is included for data and for you to know who "got" it.
