Teaching my students about adjectives and verbs is one of my favorite things to do! Why? Because this Popcorn Adjectives and Verbs lesson plan makes it fun and engaging, all while focusing on these two important parts of speech. This high interest and hands on activity will focus on adjectives and verbs through a full five senses experience. Kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students will benefit from this lesson.

You'll use popping popcorn (either in a microwave or with an actual popcorn popper) to teach your students about adjectives and verbs, encouraging them to use their five senses to really experience the popcorn. This activity will also help your students prepare for descriptive writing and creative writing because it emphasizes both adjectives and verbs.

This resource includes an engaging lesson plan, student activity sheet to use during instruction, adjectives and verbs sorting center and response sheet, craft, and 3 differentiated writing extension pages. Many teachers have used this during a formal observation with rave reviews from administration, but - most importantly - STUDENTS! I promise, your kiddos will LOVE IT! It will go down as "one of their favorite activities all year!"
