I am looking for a couple of lessons on teaching adjectives to my third graders. Any ideas or "already made" worksheets would be a huge help! I am on major overload right now. Please help!

I have used this Easy as Pie pizza activity with my 2nd graders. It would be great for 3rd too. I taught it as a whole group but then used it as a center. I made my own menus so they had just adjectives rather than both adjectives and adverbs

I know the teacher who created it posts on this board too. She has great ideas on her site. (I can't think of her name at the moment. )

just did this with my sixth graders:

put on some interesting instrumental music--i found some african drum music on itunes--have students draw on paper (i told mine NO concrete pictures--only abstract).

then have a gallery stroll--give every child set of tiny post-its--at each artwork, they write one (positive, school-appropriate) adjective to describe the art and post on BACK of art.

then students get their own and (1) make sure all are adjectives--if not, discard and (2) rearrange to make a poem--then rewrite. i gave my kids the option of adding A FEW other words to make statements. (in my example, i used only the adjectives, but i made the title: Life in the Big City)

another idea: give them magazines and have them cut out pictures and then give the pictures adjectives. (ad for hair product: clean, shiny, brown, short....)

Wanted posters...

I had my students find a picture on the Internet of an animal and create a "Wanted" poster on the computer using lots of adjectives to describe their animal. They also got to choose a reward if their animal was found.

They loved doing these! Very creative, too!

I have my fifth graders use greeting cards and find all of the adjectives within the card. I then have them create cards for already existing occasions. the cards must contain 5 adjectives.

This is a _____ gift

students stand in a circle and an imaginary package is passed around. Each student must come up with a different adjective to describe the gift. i.e.

This is a heavy gift.

This is a beautiful gift. etc

They cannot duplicate so it forces them to listen, anticipate and stretch their minds.

Better used to practice than introduce!!

what a great way to add expression, drama, and movement to a lesson--kids must pantomime the HEAVY gift and gush over how BEE-Yoo-tee-ful it is! we're done with adjectives, but i'll have to find a way to squeeze that one in!

they do add the drama/actions which makes it very interesting and fun!

I suppose you could do it with adverbs too i.e. This dog went ______ (adverbial phrase)
