GLCE: W.GR.06.01


Introduction: Today we will read a book called Mrs. Katzand Tush by Patricia Polacco.  Listen for adjectives. Remember that adjectives are words that describe a noun.  Make a list of adjectives as you listen to the story.


Teaching: Adjectives help paint word pictures.  They describe nouns in detail.


Active Involvement: Students listen to the story and record adjectives and descriptive phrases.


Applying the Skills or Strategy:  Generate “dull” sentences on chart paper.  Students take the dull sentences and rewrite them adding adjectives.
