Now that you have your hands on the list here are 10 personality adjectives activity ideas you can use with your students. 

      

1. Choose 5 or more personality adjectives from the list that you can use to describe yourself.

2. Use 2 or more adjectives to describe one of your friends (positive adjectives only!). 

3. Use 2 or more adjectives to describe a pet.

4. Use 2 or more adjectives to describe a character in a movie or cartoon. These can be a much bigger activity if you show images of different characters and explore what adjectives are appropriate in class discussions

5. Think of personality adjectives that start with each letter of the alphabet. ( Limit the time; 2-5 minutes works well)  

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

7. Fold a piece of A4 paper into 4 and draw a circle in each section.  Now draw a different face on each circle that matches a personality adjective.  If your students need more direction, you could start this activity by drawing the first one on the board with an adjective for them to copy.  Then provide an adjective for the second and third and ask them to draw a matching face.  Then let them choose their own adjective for the fourth.

8. Create groups or words from the list - positive, negative, angry, friendly, smart, foolish are possible groupings.

9. Ask students in small groups to create and draw a character together and then choose 2 or 3 personality adjectives to describe the character. A collection of characters drawn on A3 paper make a great classroom display.

10. Explore a classroom favourite book or story and use words from the list to describe them.  Once this is done go on a treasure hunt and look through the book for personality adjectives the author used.
