Last week we reviewed linking and action verbs, two different parts of speech. This week we will focus on adjectives, words that describe nouns, and nouns. Adjectives and nouns are 2 additional parts of speech. Nouns, as you may know, are words that fall under the categories of persons, places or things. The word, library, is a noun because it is a place. When one uses words to describe the library, then one is using adjectives. Ice cream is another noun. Can you find 4 adjectives to describe ice cream?
1. With your partners, brainstorm a list of adjectives to describe a dog.
2. With your partners, brainstorm a list of adjectives to describe a flower or a tree.
Write this list in your writer’s notebook. Title your page, Adjectives and Nouns.
