We have been working on an exciting project to make adjectives more exciting. This was originally inspired by a teacher from Australia-Chris Betcher. We have researched some interesting adjectives and chosen one that we found most exciting to present. The children chose a wide variety from shy to furious to redolent!
They were required to find out the dictionary definition and the 'google' definition and compare the two. Next they drafted many poems to try and capture what the the adjective was all about. We worked hard to refine the poems-take out unnecessary words add in more colourful language and also try hard to not actually mention the adjective in the poem.
Next came choosing a suitable google app to present on, and find the perfect picture to represent the adjective. The fonts we chose were very important too and how the text was displayed on the page.
Here are the first few that are finished. I think they are smashing!
