Learning about adjectives can be fun, and a little creepy too, with this unit about adjectives! Start with a four page story about Creepy Town's adjective problem, then help the newspaper editor bring adjectives back into her newspaper! All of this to help Mayor Drac get over being called "wimpy"! Fun at not only Halloween, but any time of the school year! Designed for 2nd and 3rd graders, but perfect for 4th graders still confused about adjectives.
This unit includes:
4 page story
4 worksheets (two versions of one sheet)
Game board, spinner and 8 pages (72) adjective cards

What an awesome resource! "My kids" loved this interactive way to review adjectives. They thought it was so funny that they wanted to re-read the story over and over. I loved it because it was a great way to reinforce the use of adjectives without putting much thought into it.

I used this lesson for an observation this year. It went great, thanks!!! The students loved everything that we did and my principal was very impressed! The kids have wanted to play the game every day since the lesson!!

This is a fantastic (and fun), resource. The kids loved it. Thanks so much for creating it :)
Students absolutely loved this unit. We had a great time using our adjectives with the clozed sentences in creepy town news.
I adore this! My students had a blast reading through the story script together and were elated when they realized they would be able to help with the problem. My principal came and observed me while teaching this lesson and was very impressed with it as well.
