Here is a visual way I teach my students about adjectives. Now...it seems like a lot, but it is really simple...I've just explained every little thing that goes into it.
First, of course I have a mini lesson about adjectives. Then, I have my students brainstorm some adjectives or look through a thesaurus. Next, I show them Apple Adjectives! Apple Adjectives is a vibrant and visual way to show and remind students about adjectives. Here's how I made the apple adjectives...I chose red, green and yellow as my apple colors. I printed a the apple print on one white paper and then made many copies using various colors on the school copier. I also printed out leaves on a white paper and printed them out as well on the school copier. Finally, my students get to pick an interesting adjective and the apple color they like. I usually write their names on a piece of paper with their corresponding adjectives and apple colors (I have included an easy to use form). I take the printed out apples and place them in the printer (every printer is different so please test a blank sheet with an arrow on it before you print). Then I go to page 4 of the Word document where I have typed the word marvelous. I type and print student's adjective (I do this one by one...sometimes below I type their name out in a smaller font). The next day I have the students cut around the apple. Sometimes they have difficulty cutting out around the leaf. I tell them they can cut if off. I have my students then cut out one of the green leaves and paste it on the top of the apple. The students are excited when they see their Adjective Apples in the room the next day and can easily use them in their work.
I have the files in both Rich Text Format for Windows/Mac (so you can edit) and PDF. The font is included.
*I have also included Apple Heart Adjectives. It is on the 3rd page in the word document. I usually print this out in a pink color...even though apples aren't truly pink. Now, I usually do this during the month of February, but anytime will work. I tell my students that they can only use nice and uplifting adjectives to put in the Apple Heart Adjectives.
