Learning Objective

Students will correctly order adjectives in a sentence.


This 45-slide PowerPoint teaches students how to correctly order adjectives in sentences. It begins by reviewing what an adjective does in a sentences. It then introduces the concept of "sliding" adjectives into sentences in a sequential order:

1. opinion

2. size

3. age

4. shape

5. condition

6. color

7. origin

8. material

9. purpose

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.4.1d Order adjectives within sentences according to conventional patterns (e.g., a small red bag rather than a red small bag).

This PowerPoint contains this format:

Please note! There are two suggested orders that exist. One suggested order places "age" earlier than the other. For these resources, I decided to use the order that is listed in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary and the Cambridge Dictionary.
