Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 8 pages | Grades: 2 - 6

Get your students to use new words to describe objects with this set of 13 bright and colorful posters.

Integrate Strong Adjectives Into Student Writing

This set of printable adjective posters is an easy way to improve your students’ vocabularies and writing skills. Young writers often resort to using basic and boring adjectives to describe things in their writing. These posters solve that problem by providing your students with stronger and more descriptive adjectives to use in their daily writing assignments.

These posters are available in both English and Spanish, which makes them an excellent resource for dual language classrooms or as a tool to create differentiation for ELL learners. Each adjective poster contains a minimum of twenty words covering:

  • Taste
  • Touch
  • Sound
  • Color
  • Size 
  • Time 
  • Shape
  • Amount
  • Feelings (good and bad)
  • Personality
  • Appearance
  • Smell

How to Make the Most of Your Adjective Posters 

  1. Print the posters on letter-size paper, slip them into clear sleeves and use them in your guided groups as a reminder. 
  2. Print the poster on letter-size paper, slide it into a clear sleeve, and hang it on a ring as a reference tool for a learning center. 
  3. Print the posters and hang them in the classroom as a permanent reference display for students.
  4. Print the posters at a smaller scale (4-6 per sheet) and have students place them into their writing notebooks or binders.

We’ve also come up with bonus ways to turn posters into interactive tools that really make your lessons stick! 

 Place copies in students’ homework folders or binders for reference.

 Provide posters as digital resources for virtual students.
