Today we used skittles to learn about adjectives. We reviewed what nouns are and gave examples. Then we reviewed what adjectives are. Next we made connections to the characteristics we used to describe Crankenstein and the Peasants in Stone Soup. BrainPop Jr. has a great video on adjectives that the students really enjoyed. We discussed adjectives used in the video. Then I handed out one skittle to each student. I showed them how to hold it with their palm open so they could observe it and so it wouldn't get sticky. We observed our skittle with each of our five senses. Then students discussed with their partner adjectives that describe their skittle. Finally we shared out and added adjectives to our anchor chart. The students really loved the lesson and had a concrete understanding of adjectives.
