Adjectives make writing wonderful! This literacy activity helps students develop conventions of grammar when they write. Seven Easter themed graphics are provided as well as four adjectives for each object. Students can match the words to the corresponding illustration. Adjectives are coded with numbers for self-correction. Students then use the cards to fill in a paper listing the adjectives and use them in sentences to describe the illustration.
Is this download great as a whole group interactive lesson, a writing center activity, seven worksheets or a book of adjectives? You decide.
Use these as a whole group activity: Hand out the large illustration cards to students around the room. Then pass out the adjectives and have the students move to match themselves up to the picture they think their adjective describes. Or after passing out the adjectives, show the illustration to the class and have the students who think their adjective describes the graphic stand up. Have them explain why their adjective describes the graphic.
The medium sized illustrations and adjective cards also will make a great addition to your writing center or a pocket chart. Students match up the medium-sized adjective cards to the illustrations and then complete the writing worksheet.
Make it easy on you. Don’t want to have all the cards and the work? Included is a chart listing the adjectives. Students can cut the words apart and rearrange them to fit into the correct order for each sentence. Put all the pages together to make an adjectives book for the students to complete for those early finishers, morning work or even homework. A book cover is also provided in your download.
I grouped all of the color ink pages together for ease in printing. You may want to print these pages onto card stock for durability or even laminate them if you choose to use as a center activity.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L1.1f: Use frequently occurring adjectives.
Watch your students' writings become more creative and detailed as they start using more adjectives. Enjoy reading their writing.
