Adjectives + Artsy Fifth Graders Week 7

Teaching adjectives is one of my favorites. Every year I have my students complete a worksheet called "Kiki's Kitty" in which they have to come up with an adjective fore every letter of the alphabet.

I allow them to use their dictionaries if they are unable to think of an adjective. The results are pretty hilarious.

After they completed this worksheet, I had them make acrostics with their names. They had to think of an adjective for every letter in their name. Again, I let them use their dictionaries if they couldn't think of one.

Again, excellent results.
