Describing Dragons Worksheet

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 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
