This year, I have been blessed with a class of little writers!! All of my ‘staches enjoy writing and even ask to work on writing!! I know that’s a little unusual, but I’ve enjoyed seeing their writing grow!
We recently started working on adjectives and adding adjectives into our writing! And boy, did we have some fun with adjectives….and glitter…of course there’s glitter!
You see, glitter, because adjectives make our writing sparkle!!!!
I wrote an adjective describing each of my ‘staches.
Then I put the adjectives in the glittery eggs!
I placed the eggs in a basket and each ‘stache took turns choosing an egg. We read the word and then the class had to decide who I was talking about!! (I made myself a list so I could remember…I’m old!)
Once we figured out the right ‘stache, recorded our answers on our sparkly chart!
We then discussed that adjectives are words the describe nouns and make our writing SPARKLE!!!
This lesson ended up being way more powerful than I imagined because we got every adjective right on the first guess. Our sense of community is so strong that we could immediately identify our friends by a single describing word! I am so blessed that my classroom is a place where my ‘staches feel safe enough to own their unique and inspiring qualities!
