We have spent quite a bit of time over the past couple of years learning what adjectives are, making lists, playing games, and adding spice to our writing. It's just not enough! I love spicy writing, and my kids know that. I encourage my kids to use colorful language...but not that kind you may think of! Ha!
I found this cute, homemade adjective poster on Pinterest (we can discuss that love affair later). I decided to recreate the poster on cardstock. Surrounding the large word there are several descriptions of what adjectives could be. I covered those with post-it notes, then presented my homemade poster to Belle. She pulled the post-its off, one-by-one, and used the description to think of more adjectives. Then, she glued the post-its on a piece of black paper. We put both pages into plastic sleeves and taped them together. Laid flat, they are a perfect poster, and folded in half they can go straight into her learning notebook. This was just the first of many adjective activities, which I happily borrowed (and bought) from the same blog where I found this poster.
FYI (because many ask): We do not have/use a language arts curriculum. I have a language arts book, purchased from Half Price Books, that I use to help with scope and sequence for Belle's language & grammar development. We used it for a while, but she quickly tired of the activities. We prefer more hands on, less worksheet/fill in the blank. ☮
