Adjectives or describing words describe a noun or a pronoun.
You can read about describing words in detail and also download the anchor chart above by going to this post on my blog.
Before attempting this pack, I suggest you try Pack 1 of Adjectives by clicking here. It is an ideal pack when describing words have just been introduced.
Let me discuss a few worksheets from this pack with you in brief.
The above worksheet is about describing words and antonyms.
wet – dry
See the picture and add the describing words from the word box to complete the sentence.
Children should be encouraged to think about new words to describe something. Certain adjectives which have become meaningless due to being overly used should be avoided. Example: nice, very, many, good etc.
a good movie
Here, good can be replaced with a more interesting word.
an exciting movie
Doesn’t the latter sound better?
The above worksheet is about a simple story which can be described better and more vividly by adding adjectives from the box. Read the story and then add the adjectives to complete it.
This worksheet is about synonyms and adjectives. Synonyms are words with similar meanings. There are sentences where the adjective to be replaced with another word having the same meaning has been underlined. Pick the right word from the box to replace it.
The next worksheet has sentences which are missing its describing words. Use the words from the word back to make the sentences more interesting and descriptive. This worksheet will help your child understand how to describe a noun better.
The letters of the adjectives are jumbled up in this worksheet. Read the sentence and then try to unscramble the word so that it makes sense and describes the noun. If the child is finding it challenging, you can always help by telling them the starting letter of the describing word. This activity helps children become better at spelling words in general.
Two more worksheets where the nouns and adjectives have to be matched. I also encourage the children to form sentences from the matched words and write them down in the notebook.
