Adjective Identification Worksheet: Scaffolding and Extension Tips
In addition to individual student work time, use this worksheet as a:
- Writing center activity
- Post-lesson exit ticket
- Homework assignment
- Whole-class review (via smartboard)
Got fast finishers? Students who need a challenge can underline the nouns (and verbs) in specified colors in each sentence.
Students who need extra support can work in a guided small group. Read each sentence aloud and ask students to use a hand gesture such as a thumbs up to point out the adjective when they hear it. Once students have correctly identified as a group which word is the adjective, they will write it on the line.
