The Best Sites For Gaining A Basic Understanding Of Adjectives | Larry Ferlazzo's Websites of the Day...

Adjectives - Grammar for Kids

An adjective describes, or modifies, a noun or a pronoun. Adjectives can tell what kind, how many, or which one.

Mrs. Caslen Says:
This is a perfect place for you to go when you are at home studying, doing homework, or just trying to remember what we talked about in class that day.
-The first link on the page (https://sites.google.com/site/topicsforkids/adjectives) takes you to a site full of games, videos, questions, and more questions. :) I can't get enough of this resource. We will definitely be using this in small group and at my teacher table, so don't have too much fun at home!
-The second link (the one on the far right) on the page (https://sites.google.com/site/topicsforkids/adjectives/comparing) is pretty much the same thing, except it deals with comparing topics with adjectives.
-The third link on the page is a PowerPoint lesson teaching you all about adjectives and giving you lots and lots of examples. It is very similar to the one I teach in class. This is a great resource when you are at home if you ever need that "refresher" especially since I'm not there to help you.

What is an Adjective? A List of Adjectives for Kids - Kids Play and Create

An adjective is a word that describes a noun.  Words that describe sounds, shapes, sizes, times, numbers/quantity, textures/touch,weather are all examples of adjectives.

Mrs. Caslen Says:
This website will help you when we are creating our self-portraits. If you want some really strong, creative adjectives, you can look at the 4th – 6th grade level. If you want or need a few shorter, “cuter” adjectives to describe yourself you can look at the lower level adjectives. This just helps to break down the words by grade level so you have a better understanding of each term you are using as you use it.

Mrs. Caslen Says:
This website is a “story starter” site that takes you through the steps of writing your own story. I chose this recourse because at the end of our adjectives unit, you will be writing sentences and creating a story with your adjectives. The ultimate goal is to help you become a better writer by using more vivid adjectives to make your writing more exciting. This will help you to get your creative juices flowing so when it gets to the point in our lesson of writing, hopefully it will not be such a “daunting” task and it will flow naturally and come easily for you. After all, practice makes perfect!
