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.
