Draw your own picture of a farmer tending his crop. Include animals that might be trying to eat his crop, like rabbits or chickens. Write a sentence describing what is happening at the bottom of the picture. Make sure you use adjectives in this sentence.
Draw an animal that you would like to have as a pet ( cat, rabbit, turtle, lizard, snake, guinea pig). How many words can you think of to describe your pet. Thinking of our five senses will help you come up with ideas.
Ask your students to suggest nouns. When they do, write them on the board. When you have five to ten nouns ask your students to think of two adjectives that could be used to describe each one of them. This could simply be a classroom discussion or you could ask your students to write their ideas in a workbook.
Colour in these words. The letter designs are inspired by the meaning of the word: wavy, melted, funny, shiny, crooked, wet, wooden, rusty, dripping, fuzzy, lighted, hairy, rocky, frosty, spotty.
Create an adjective classroom display. Color in large versions of the adjectives above. You can find them printed on A4 paper here.
Here are two examples.
Ask your students to match up the adjectives with the nouns by drawing lines to join pairs of words. They can also color in the word pairs so that they are the same color.
There are no right answers to this which will mean that your students will come up with different answers. One student may join orange with turtle and another with letter.
