Awesome Adjectives and Vivid Verbs
Submitted by: Jennifer de Rocquigny
This is a writing activity that incorporates grammar. I used it after I had introduced the students to adjectives and verbs. They had a lot of fun with this activity. I gave them a story starter and asked them to complete the story by adding in 10 awesome adjectives and 10 vivid verbs, as well as a conclusion that tied up all loose ends. Each adjective and verb could only be used once. I also encouraged them to use a thesaurus. You could also break this into two assignments.
