On the last day of school before winter break, we reviewed adjectives (words that describe nouns) and used the song "Mr.Grinch" to help us practice identifying them. (At some point, I read about a more elaborate version of this idea HERE, which helped spark the idea.)
Anyway, we first pasted a picture of The Grinch from here into our Thoughtful Logs (as pictured below). Then we watched and listened to this video that played the song, along with the lyrics, to identify adjectives.
For independent practice, we created the chart below to help us generate sentences beginning with nouns, so we could become familiar with adjectives as words which describe nouns.
The requirement was to generate at least 10 simple sentences, but many of us had so much fun practicing that we ended up doing far more!
