This fun and educational activity provides valuable practice using and identifying adjectives while giving your students a purposeful reason to be up and out of their seats!
The 35 game cards feature St. Patrick's Day clip art and seasonal text that tells a little story to engage student interest from beginning to end. They are in full color, but also print up nicely in gray-scale black & white. The almost no-prep packet is ready to print and use, requiring very little preparation! I've included two versions - numbered and non-numbered - to allow you to select the version that is best for your students.
After cards have been shuffled and distributed amongst students, the student holding the first card reads the sentence clue. The student who has the sentence's adjective (at the top of his/her card) states that he/she has it, and then reads the next sentence clue. Play continues until all sentences have been read and adjectives have been identified.
Here is what this packet includes:
♥ 2 sets (numbered and non-numbered) of the same 35 game cards and 1 cover card (6 pages each)
♥ relevant Common Core Standards
♥ Teacher Notes
♥ optional recording sheet
♥ answer key
I created this activity with my gifted 3rd graders in mind, but it can provide valuable practice for 2nd and 4th graders as well. Although I play this with my whole class, it would also be fun to play in a smaller group (with each player holding multiple cards).
This activity is aligned with the following Common Core ELA-Language Standards:
** Second Grade (L.2.1.E)
** Third Grade (L.3.1.A)
Please note - this activity is included in my
