Identifying Adjectives: Students choose a character from a book. Group together students who choose the same character. Direct each group to scan the book for adjectives describing the character and record them. Next, instruct groups circle 7-10 words that best describe the character. Have them illustrate and cut out the character's head and arms, then draw and cut out the character's feet. Accordion-fold a sheet to make the body. Have the child label each fold with a word from their list.
FREE My Editing Checklist - 1 sheet. I used this with my 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students to help them review and improve their writing. If any of their boxes are checked "NO" they must go back and correct the mistakes and check the "CORRECTED" box after they have fixed their mistakes. I kept this sheet at our Writing Center and also had students use them for Writing Homework assignments.
