Who? What Do They Look Like? DESCRIPTION please!
One thing students seem to need to do more of, in their writing, is expand it, and include more description.
Even at the college level, I’m constantly telling my students to add more interest by including adjectives.
Involve your reader’s senses and your writing will come alive!
I’ve designed a Sensory Word Anchor chart poster for each month, to help students practice that skill.
For some of their senses they’ll have to think outside the box and use their imaginations. This can be a lot of fun, and their answers quite interesting!

Making Adjectives Awesome
Do you need something fresh to go over adjectives with your students or something easy for them to work on independently while you do assessing?
You’ve come to the right place.
They’ll enjoy butterfly and caterpillar adjectives.
It’s a nice way to build vocabulary and work on those describing words that will enhance their writing and nail that core standard.
Students color their caterpillar and butterfly, trace the adjectives, add a few of their own, cut them out, sort them to whatever sheet they feel is appropriate, and glue them down.
I’ve included an FYI about how some adjectives are sometimes words that can be used as verbs and adverbs and provide teachable moments, as well as a reminder bookmark of what an adjective is.
This makes a fun writing center or Daily 5 activity.
