Do your students struggle with descriptive writing? Are they using the same adjectives over and over in their writing? This small group game is the perfect way to improve those skills!
Apply the Adjective is designed to help your students grow their ability to use stronger adjectives in their everyday writing. It is perfect for small group teaching or center work!
The Halloween version includes cards for monsters, treats, trick-or-treating, costumes, and more! You only need about 16 cards to play, so if there are characters you aren’t comfortable using it’s ok to leave them out! Or, check out my Fall Edition instead!
Students will take turns deciding who in their group has written the best adjective to describe a picture noun card. You will definitely want to model this first - I usually do this in a whole group setting. I created the game to get my kids to think beyond color words, number words and basic adjectives like "big" and "happy" --- It seems to be working! :)
