    I use old calendar pictures that I have glued to a large piece of construction paper and laminated. I leave room for writing under the pictures. We then brainstorm all the words that can describe the picture. Obviously, this would be after you teach the definition of adjectives. :) The kids really like to describe the pictures. I choose really cute, colorful ones (see the adjectives..ha) that the kids can relate too. After we did this whole group, I had the students break into groups and write adjectives for a different picture. They then had to stand up and read their list of adjectives and see if we could guess what they were describing. Good fun!
