Using Adjectives

This week we have been learning about how to use adjectives in our writing.

Adjectives are describing words and using good adjectives makes your writing much more interesting to read. Adjectives add colour to your writing!

Adjectives you might use when describing a snake are: scaly, slithery, poisonous, scary, long and smooth.

Adjectives you might use when describing a puppy are: cute, fluffy, small, playful, cheeky, noisy and lovable.

Adding extra information and details to your sentences helps the reader to make a picture in their mind about what is happening.

To remind ourselves about adjectives, we used this website on our interactive whiteboard:

Adjectives

We turned some basic sentences into interesting sentences by adding adjectives and more information!

Adjectives sentences

 

We’d love to hear your interesting adjective-filled sentences in your comments!

Can you make this sentence more interesting by adding adjectives and extra information?

The boy rode his bike.

OR

What adjectives would you use to describe yourself?

  1. Dear Miss Jordan, 😳

    What a great post.

    The little boy rode his nice bike to the lolly shop with his mum and dad.

    See you on Monday,
    Paris. :mrgreen:

  2. Adjectives really do help us colour our writing. Some adjectives to help colour the sentence the boy rode his bike would be:
    The determined and non-cowardly red haired boy rode his glistening yellow push bike on the rocky and highly dangerous road with no responsible and caring parent to supervise him if he crashed with a fearsome and powerful car and broke his blood filled leg.

  3. Hello 2km/2kj!
    I am from 6LB at Serpell Primary School and I will try to post some great adjectives into your sentences and maybe share a few of my favourite adjectives with you:

    The enthusiastic boy rode his brand new silver bike on the rough road to the enormous park.
    Greasy- Very dirty or slimy
    Ridiculous- Bad and hard to put up with
    Glistening- Shining
    Hope you enjoy your “describing”!

    To describe myself using ajectives is that I am a girl with curly brown long hair and I have brown eyes.

      Jordi

    • Dear ♥Ava♥,

      You are a great blogger and you leave such quality comments. 😛

      I really l♥ve this post too, it is very very interesting.

      To describe the little boy rode his bike I would put some adjectives in it.
      Here it is: :mrgreen:

      The little blue boy rode his blue bike to the shops with his mum and dad.

      Do you like my sentence ❓

      I like the adjectives you put in your sentences. 😆

      I think that is all for now.

      Kind regards,
      Kayla your friend 🙂

  6. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,

    I do have a sentence to share with you. The ungrateful boy rode his rusty small bike to the bike shop, to get a new bike.

    Does anyone know a way how to describe me?

    Lots of love,

    Haille.

    • Dear Haille,

      Thank you for leaving a comment on the blog you are awesome at blogging.

      I like your sentence it is very interesting.
      Here is my sentence:
      The little cute red boy went to the blue lolly shop to get some delicious lollies.

      It is so hard to think of a different sentence each time I reply! 😆

      Do you like my sentence ❓
      I like your sentence.

      No I cannot describe you but… you are a very nice girl. 😛

      From your friend,
      Kayla ♥ 🙂

  7. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,

    I loved reading your interesting sentences – adjectives really do change an ordinary sentence into something extraordinary!

    The little, blue-eyed boy rode his brand new bike determinedly down the footpath, avoiding the slow-moving pedestrians.

    As for your second question, “determined,” “enthusiastic” and “creative” would be the top 3 adjectives that I would use to describe myself.

    Keep up the wonderful work – I look forward to reading lots of excellent, adjective-filled sentences in the future!

    All the best,
    Stef Galvin

    • Dear Stef,

      Thank you for your comment!
      Here is my sentence: The little boy rode his bike with his dog to the book shop to borrow some books.

      Some thins to describe me will be brown – hair, blue – eyes and I am a nice person.

      Happy blogging,
      Eb

  8. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,

    I LOVE adjectives! Writing would be so boring without them! When I teach my students about adjectives, I refer to it as “painting a picture with words.” Most artists put a lot of detail in their paintings. Great writers add a lot of details by using adjectives!

    I could make a sentence about myself better too:

    Mr. Avery can cook.

    Mr. Avery is an amazing cook who can make marvelous, delicious treats in the microwave!

    Your friend,
    Mr. Avery

    • @ Mr Avery,

      Thanks for the comment, I love adjectives too.

      That sentence was absolutely interesting!

      Do you have any more sentences? Here is my example:
      My dad drives a jeep.
      My adventurous dad has a midnight black Rubicon Wrangler Jeep.

      Your blogging pal,
      Amelie

    Great post!
    Adjectives are great fun to me. Are they great fun to you ❓

    I would describe me as: I have blonde hair, I’m sporty, my favourite colour is black, white and purple. The way I would describe the boy that rode his bike is: The nice big boy rode safely on his black, silver and red bike because he was going to the shops to buy the groceries that his mum told him to get. 😆

    I love using adjectives. I love using adjectives because it will make my sentences sound interesting. My two favourite things about adjectives, like I said they make your sentences sound intresting and you might learn new words.

  15. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,
    I think it’s absolutely and positively terrific that you are learning about adjectives!

    Writing would be a complete bore and nobody would read any books if there weren’t adjectives.

    I have a sample for you about my dog, Reese. (This actually happened last weekend.)

    With her thin arms wrapped around his neck,the blind and bare-footed, brown haired girl gushed, “Reese, I love your cushy, long hair!”.

    Enjoy your lessons!

      Sorry if it is small.

      Do you have a adjective for me?

      Love from
      Keira. 😆

      • Dear Keira,
        I like your sentence about the brown dog. Can we play a game and make it longer?

        How about – The silly brown dog barked loudly at the kids from school.

        I added an adjective and an adverb! Can you figure out which one is which?

        Have fun!
        Mrs. Hembree

  18. This is a really great exercise for practicing adjective use. I feel like a lot of young kids these days haven’t seen enough focus on this in school.

    Great Project!

  19. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,

    What a fabulous post full of brilliant adjectives!

    Adjectives are so important in writing. They add details and excitement to sentences and stories. In my class we call good adjectives “salsa words” because they are colorful like salsa, they spice things up, and they get your attention just like salsa does.

    As you said, the most important reason to use adjectives is that they help the reader really picture what you are writing about.

    Here are some sentences with adjectives about my good friend Juan Pablo: Juan Pablo has enormous red eyes. His bulging eyes are so dazzling that they sometimes startle his drowsy friend, Perezoso the sloth.

    From,
    Mr. Salsich

    • @ Mr. Salsich,

      Thank you for leaving a comment on this blog.

      I love how you described Juan Pablo; it really makes me think of him. 😆

      My favourite thing about your comment is that it is interesting.

      What is your favourite thing about using adjectives? My favourite thing about adjectives is that it makes your sentences sound interesting.

      Do you know what none’s are? I do.

      Thankyou for leaving the comment again.

      Best Wishes,
      Alana

      • Dear Alana,

        Thanks for replying back to me so quickly!

        Hmm, I think my favorite thing about using adjectives is thinking up different words that mean the same thing. For example, instead of using the adjective big, I could use large, gigantic, or enormous.

        Different words that mean the same thing are called synonyms. They can make sentences sound extremely interesting.

        I have to admit, I’m not sure what none’s are. Did you mean nouns? I know what those are, but maybe you could tell what you know about them.

        From,
        Mr. Salsich

        • @ Mr. salsich,

          Thank you for replying to me so quickly. 😆

          Sorry, I mean I’m sorry because I spelt noun wrong.

          Now I’m going to tell you what I think nouns are: nouns are objects, and I’m going to give you a couple of examples:
          1. Table
          2. Chair
          3. Drink
          4. White board
          5. Clock and
          6. Rubber. 😆

          Do you know what verbs are? I do.
          If you don’t know what verbs are I will give you a couple of example by the way verbs are doing things:
          1. Walking
          2. Running
          3. Skipping
          4. Working and lots more.

          Thank you for the reply again.

          Best Wishes,
          Alana

  20. Hi 2KM and 2KJ
    Here is a sentance that we made up. The silly, slim boy road his bike fast.
    from Jacques and Heidi.

  21. @ Mr. Salsich,

    Thank you for the reply.

    Have you noticed that we are having a conversation. Thankyou for saying that I put lots of information in my other comment.

    Thank you for the reply again.

    Best Wishes,
    Alana
