What can we learn about ADJECTIVES & ADVERBS from books?

We are beginning a writing unit focusing on the genre of DESCRIPTION.  In order to write descriptive texts we need to build our understanding of how to best use ADJECTIVES & ADVERBS.  Great authors do this really well.  Through reading we can build our bank of descriptive words.

This week we listened to Nick Bland’s “The VERY cranky bear”.  This story has lots of descriptive language.

What adjectives and adverbs are in this story?

What are some other examples of ADVERBS (words that describe ‘HOW’ – the degree)?

Have you read another picture book that has lots of adjectives & adverbs in it?

(You could  re-read some picture books at home for your Reading Journal this week. As you do make a list of great descriptive words you spot.)

You may like to have another go at creating a character of your own and record a short description…
