By – Melissa Wise
Primary Subject – Language Arts
Secondary Subjects – Math
Grade Level – K-5
At open house, ask students to bring a picture of themselves for the first day of school. Teachers can use the media center camera and take a picture if needed. On the first day, have students make a bubble map describing themselves with their picture in the middle. For students who can take it a step further, draw a square around the map and give information to prove why. Allow students to work in cooperative groups to assist each other with adjectives. Allow class time to share and explain.
As a math extension, graph bubble map adjectives to show the most popular to the least popular. This lesson might also be used start an autobiography that uses a timeline. Let the imagination do its job!

This lesson provides a little tic-tac-toe fun with adjectives Subject:
Title – A Little Fun with Adjectives
By – Kelli E. Butler
Primary Subject – Language Arts
Grade Level – 4th Grade
This is a great way to review adjectives! We did this with a group of 17 in my class and my kids LOVED it! You can also do this activity with verbs or even play tic-tac-toe as review for other subject areas! 1. South Carolina Standard:
4-W1.5 – Demonstrate the ability to edit for language conventions such as spelling, capitalization, punctuation, agreement, sentence structure (syntax), and word usage. 2. Goals:
Students will become familiar and aware of adjectives, how they are used in sentences, how to find them in sentences, and how to determine if they are used in the correct format. 3. Objectives:
Students will be able to identify, by playing tic-tac-toe, the correct way to use an adjective in a sentence. Students will be able to write, by words on the board, adjectives such as happy, happier, and happiest, for practice on their own and use them in a sentence correctly. 4. Equipment:
Tic-tac-toe game board and pieces (This should be pre-made by the teacher. You can laminate a piece of poster board and draw the tic-tac-toe lines on it before laminating. To make the x’s and o’s, you can cut these out on the die-cut machine at your school or local teacher store. You should have these laminated as well for future use.) Sentences on transparency
Words on Sentence Strips
The teacher will talk about what we have been discussing this week; Adjectives The teacher will ask the students to recall things about adjectives that they have learned this week. After discussion, I will restate what the students recalled about adjectives and anything they may have left out. The teacher will then divide the class down the middle to play Tic-tac-toe with adjectives. The teacher will then go over the rules and set boundaries for the students The teacher will then show a sentence on the overhead and team A will have a chance to determine the correct form of the adjective that should be used in the sentence If team A answers incorrectly, team B gets a chance to steal. It will then be team B’s turn. Play game until either team wins tic-tac-toe
The teacher will have students go back to their seats, and pull out 1 piece of notebook paper The teacher will have students look at the board at the words on the sentence strips. The teacher will instruct the students to write ten correct sentences using those ten adjectives. The teacher will walk around to monitor students and to help any student who needs assistance. 6.
