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?

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.
