This week has been all about adjectives as we try and get back to our “show me” rather than “tell me” writing! Today was our big adjective runway show…NYC style!
The kiddos came dressed in complete runway style ready to work it on the catwalk! And let me tell you…they were FIERCE! I say this often, but this was one of my favorite writing activities! We turned up the music and off they went…
We even had a visit from Steven Tyler! This kid is hilarious!
As each child walked down the runway to show off their fashionable attire, we “rated” their outfit. However, our numbers did not represent our opinion of their duds, but rather how many adjectives we could think of to describe what they had on. Then we typed up a list of all of our descriptive words to keep in our writing folders.
When our models walked back down the runway, the kiddos held up these flipbooks with the number of adjectives they could name to describe their attire.
Let’s just say the runway didn’t look a thing like this when we were finished! We had way too much fun!
