Using Vivid Adjectives

Hairy, Scary, Ordinary: What Is an Adjective? (Words Are Categorical) by Cleary and Prosmitsky focuses upper elementary learners on using vivid adjectives to enhance their writing. After discussing the use of adjectives in the book, class members draw index cards from a bag and attempt to come up with vivid adjectives to use in place of the plain ones written on the cards. Finally, pupils use story development software to write and illustrate a story using vivid adjectives.
