Describing Dragons Worksheet

PDF, Google Slides | 2 pages|Grades: 1 - 3

With this 2-page worksheet, students will draw an original dragon and describe it by writing sentences using vivid adjectives.

We know how much students love to draw, so we have incorporated that into a fun adjectives activity.

First, students will draw a picture of a dragon. Then, using their knowledge of adjectives, students will write 5 sentences describing their dragon and underline all the adjectives in each sentence. 

This worksheet is best used as independent practice as part of your parts of speech lesson. It can also be completed with your guided writing group or turned into a writing station activity

Go Deeper with Adjectives Practice 

Challenge your students to write a short story or paragraph about their creature! What does their dragon like to do? Where does it live? Does it have any friends? When their story is finished they should then circle all the adjectives. 

Scaffolding for Struggling Students

To help students get a better sense of adjectives, show examples of sentences that might describe a strange creature. Ask them to give you an adjective and draw a picture alongside them.
