Adjectives are AWESOME! There's just no doubt about it. They take a noun—any noun—and tell us more about it. These bugs will demonstrate for you just what an adjective can do....
This grammar lesson teaches all about adjectives through an enlightning story, and a creappy-crawlie word search and crossword puzzle! Also includes before-, during-, and after-reading tips, ways to extend the learning, and an "Adjectives All Around" transparency template!
During ReadingAfter reading the story once through for meaning, you can reinforce a variety of concepts in subsequent readings.• Invite students to clap once for each adjective they hear.• Focus on common adjective endings by having students raise their hands only on adjectives that end in ous. Then try the same technique for ic, y, and so on!
