Personality Adjective Activity Ideas

  • Choose 5 adjectives and then write a paragraph describing a person using each one.  For example, the adorable child with blond curls looked curiously at me.  She held her mother's hand tightly.  In the other, was a small, slightly squished teddy bear.  I said hello but she didn't respond.  Instead she just slowly blinked her big brown eyes.
  • Use the adectives to describe the people in their class (positive adjectives only!). 

  • Think of personlity adjectives that start with each letter of the alphabet. ( Limit the time; 10 minutes works well.  Award a point for each personality adjective they think of and two if they are not on the list.  Your students could do this before looking at the list and then another time after looking at the list).

  • Add personality adjectives to the list.  Can you expand it to 400 or 500?  Can you add a new word each day?
