This resource is all about adjectives! Specifically, identifying, using, and relating them to one another.
First, there is a Bingo game. The teacher/therapist asks the student to describe a specific noun/situation. The student is to find the appropriate adjective on his Bingo board. The 24 targeted adjectives are: soft, hot, dirty, wet, stinky, rich, scary, cold, sick, big, strong, little, beautiful, loud, sad, fat, salty, old, ugly, tall, mean, sharp, sleepy and clean.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.1.1.F: Use frequently occurring adjectives.
Next, the student is asked to use the adjective in an original sentence of her own. She can do a basic sentence (i.e. "The sun is hot.") or take it up to a more advanced sentence (i.e. "The hot sun melted my ice cream."). Visual prompts are provided to help her formulate the more advanced sentence.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.1.1.J: Produce and expand complete simple and compound declarative, interrogative, imperative, and exclamatory sentences in response to prompts.
The last activity,"Not this, that", is a worksheet that contains a specific noun. The student needs to find the word that does NOT describe the noun. He then completes a sentence using both the correct word and its antonym.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.1.5.C: Identify real-life connections between words and their use.
Things to remember:
Please review all the adjective symbols on the Bingo board before you play. Some of these can be abstract and may need clarification.
The sentences provided are just examples. If the student chooses an adjective that makes sense to the targeted noun/situation that is fine. It does not have to be the one in the sample.
Let the student try to make his own sentence BEFORE showing him the prompt. Only show him the prompt if he is stuck.
Although the CCSS are targeted for first grade, this can be used with anyone who needs help with adjectives.
