Adjective Order

Here is a free adjective order poster and two fun worksheets. They are designed to be used when introducing this concept.  There are are activity ideas and links to more adjective resources below.

When more than one adjective is used to describe something, all the adjectives need to be placed in the correct order. This is the correct order for adjectives: number, opinion, size, age, shape, color, origin, material, and purpose.

Activity Idea

On this poster there are two examples for each adjective type.  Students could think of two more and write them down.  Ask them to select a noun for each (seven candles, thoughtful sister, enourmous elephant, school age child, round sandwich, purple velvet, French perfume, paper tiger, computer desk)



These sentences have been written in the wrong order. 
Your students can cut them out, put them in the right order and then glue them into their workbooks.

Activity Ideas

Write a sentence with two or three adjectives on a strip of paper.  Cut the sentence into individual words and then let another student reconstruct it.  The reformed sentence could be glued into a workbook.





Your students can follow the key on this worksheet and color all the adjectives their correct color.

Activity Ideas

1. If you have magazines and newspapers available students could spend a few minutes collecting more adjectives.  These printed examples could be glued onto one page in their workbooks or used in a single class collection poster.

2. Students write adjectives on small pieces of paper.  Each student could write 2 or 3.  The pieces of paper are collected and places in a container.  These are then handed out randomly.  Student must try to use the words they are given in a sentence in the correct order.

Do you want to make your own website?

I was very lucky. When I was looking for someone to show me how to make a website I found SBI.

I watched lots of videos made by people that were using SBI and then I decided to take the plunge and I haven't looked back.

I learnt how to make a quality website based around popular keyword searches which ensured that my pages would rank high in the search engines. Throughout the process, SBI emphasized the importance of producing something of real value. 

Over the course of three years, a few hours a week,  I followed their step by step guide and to my delight and amazement,  I now have a website that attracts over 30 000 visitors a month and creates a passive income.  

If you are thinking of building your own website  but are worried about getting the wrong advice then do what I did. Join SBI.

SBI is the real deal; a genuine company that teaches and supports first time web builders so that you get the best results from your hard work.

Check out the videos that convinced me and get started......
