This Adjectives to the Rescue Mini-Unit features the Superhero Artwork of the Spanish Teacher, and incorporates it into a variety of activities, centers, and craftivities for your classroom. This product will be a perfect supplement to your adjective units, as it includes:
~4 vibrant posters that feature the Adjective Superheros and discuss-
What is an Adjective?
Adjectives tell How Many
Adjectives tell What Kind
Adjectives tell Which One
Board Game Center:
~Students travel along superhero board and give adjectives that start with the letter of the hero they've landed on. They can collect lightening bolt cards for correct answers and possibly lose them to a neighbor with the pull of a Super Chance Card! The player with the most bolt cards is the winner.
Language Arts-Creating Superhero Craftivity:
~Students can design a new superhero with the Melonheadz graphic of a boy/girl superhero, or make themselves the hero! To help aid in the design, there's a shutter foldable provided to describe their hero with various adjectives. Finally, they write about their superhero on adorable writing paper. All activities can be used in tandem, or separately as different projects. They will jazz up any bulletin board!
Write-the-Room, Read-and-Record Center Activities
~Students can explore adjectives (wearing their included Superhero Masks, in three different sizes!) while searching the room for adjectives and recording them onto their accountability sheets. This activity is differentiated in that you may have some students use either the basic sheet or the other provided one which asks them to give a better adjective than the one they found on the card.
The Read-and-Record Center has the students hunt the room for cards that have sentences with two words underlined. They must choose the word that is the adjective and record it on their sheets. Answer keys are provided.
Superhero Adjective Word Journal:
~Includes a mini-journal featuring the Adjective Superheros (one to a page) in which the students can record adjectives they collect throughout your unit study. They can color the sheets and it's small enough to carry with them or keep handy to write down words on the spur of the moment. A great way to challenge them to fill up their mini-books with adjectives!
Practice and Assessment Printables:
~For additional skill practice, there are two sorting printables, that ask students to sort into Adjective/Not an Adjective, and to sort into groups of How Many/What Kind Adjectives. I've also included three assessment printables that ask students to find the adjective types in sentences, which would be excellent for a quick assessment!
Adjective Superhero Posters:
~5 posters of the Adjective Superheroes to display in your classroom which will be a great reminder and visual for your students to use their Super Adjectives throughout their daily activities.
Whether you're reviewing adjectives or just beginning, this product is full of wonderful learning tools to assist you in your adjective journey. The graphics/themes are very appealing to students (especially the reluctant boys!) Adjectives to the Rescue includes engaging, interactive and reflective activities that I'm sure the students will benefit from completing!
