Adjectives, adjectives, adjectives everywhere 馃崕

Updated: May 3, 2019


So ... I don't know if you got it ... but I'm currently teaching adjectives 馃槄 Well, I'm saying currently because it will be current tomorrow or any time after that, when you most probably will read this post.

The grammar objective for the next unit is 'comparative and superlative'. But I can't teach how to compare adjectives if my kids don't have a good vocab base of adjectives to begin with. So the next couple of activities are designed to create that lovely base 馃槈

Activity 1: a song!

I haven't done many songs with my kids last year and honestly I don't know why! I love songs, they love songs. They're at the age where they still want to sing publicly no matter what their singing voice is 馃槀 so I gotta use that!

We are going to start with Kid's Box 3 "Different People" song. Check it out:


I just KNOW that they will try to do the dance! What I also like is that this song has a rapping vibe to it so the boys should get well into it 馃榿

Activity 2: note taking with a twist!

Thanks to the brilliant One-to-One blog I have recently learnt about Festisite.com and their great Rebus Generator. I used it to create these babies:


I made 44 cards like this. Tomorrow I'm going to hang them up around the classroom. I will give my kids a handout with all the words in Polish and they will have to work out their English equivalents by running around the classroom and solving the riddles 馃榿

Activity 3: Kaboom!

Am I being boring with this one? What can I say ... I like this game. So again I've made a set of Kaboom sticks for the kiddos. They're based on Brainy 5 unit 3 but I've extended the amount of adjectives extensively. Also, look at how cute they look with the owl Washi Tape on them 馃槏
