Adjectives, continued!

This will be a quick post!  We finished 2 more adjective projects, and here are some pics of them:

Frankenstein- students created from scratch, then wrote sentences with adjectives.

Witch skirts- I had planned for the kiddos to write short stories about their witch, BUT we ran short of time, so we just brainstormed the adjectives.  Plus, as we were charting and picking adjectives out of sentences, I was noticing that several students still think nouns are adjectives.  So, I kept it basic.  We will continue to do adjective activities for a few weeks, but probably not as many projects like these!

Also, here is an adjective assessment that you can download!

Those frankensteins are so cute! What a great project. We begin adjectives soon as I'm still working on nouns and verbs. Not sure if I'll have time to do this but maybe next year! :)

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the witch legs!!! I'm starting adjectives with my older kiddies next week, but I bet they would still like an activity like this.

Both are super cute. I wish I was allowed to do Halloween activities.

These are so cute. We don't teach adjectives for a while but I may go ahead and do these for Halloween.

Hi! Thank you for the fantastic witchy idea! I used the idea today with my multi-grade class and they loved it! I put my own spin on it and have blogged about it... if you fancy having a look.
