Adjectives are words used to describe or modify nouns or pronouns.
Example: I threw the rotten apple in the empty bin.
The nouns are apple and bin. ‘rotten’ describes the apple and ’empty’ describes the bin. Rotten and apple are both adjectives. The verb is ‘threw.’ You can how these two words have added depth to the sentence and made us visualize it.
I have discussed adjectives in detail on my blog.
I will be sharing Pack 3 of adjectives worksheets in this post. Make sure to attempt Adjectives Pack 1 and Adjectives Part 2 before moving on to Pack 3. The worksheets are interesting and varied include synonyms and antonyms.
The first among the adjectives worksheets focuses on number adjectives. You have to add a number from the word box to describe each noun and complete the sentence. Each sentence can have only one answer.
There are seven days in a week.
A bicycle has two wheels.
Pointing adjectives are also called demonstrative adjectives. Pointing adjectives, ‘this that these those’ which may also be pronouns, tell us where an object is located and how many objects there are.
This and that are used when we are pointing to one object. This points to something that is close to us and that points to something that is far from us.
This pen is yours.
That pen is mine.
These are those are used when we point to more that one object. These is used to point to something close to us and those points to things that are far from us.
These crayons are mine.
Those children in the other room have been yelling.
The next is a simple possessive adjectives worksheet. Possessive adjectives are used to show ownership.
This is his bag.
It is my bottle.
Whose car is parked in the driveway?
In the above worksheet, a sentence can have more than one answer.
The above worksheet will help a child think of words to describe something. I have nouns, verbs and adjectives sorting games for children on my website. Do check those. It is a good way to learn discriminating among ‘nouns verbs adjectives’ and also build vocabulary.
Please encourage children to use more than colours and numbers to describe a noun. Children tend to stick to colours and numbers since they are easier.
The last worksheet will be interesting as well as challenging for our learners.
After this pack, you can try ‘describe the picture’ pack with your children. It will be a step towards picture composition.
