Fall Poetry Freebie

Happy almost fall!  It's Renee here from Fantastic First Grade Froggies.  Hopefully you are getting settled with your new class and off to a great start.  I am here today with a freebie of mine from the past.  It's a great way to practice adjectives.  Read more about it below.

Here is a great poetry activity I like to do with my students.  It's a great review of their five senses and    adjectives.  First I introduced what an adjective was.  We used our five senses to describe leaves, apples and pumpkins.  I explained that these are all adjectives (and I began to see adjectives in some of their writing later in the week).

After brainstorming adjectives in small groups, we made charts from all three items.

Next we, wrote our our Fall is...poems.  We had also sponge painted construction paper is fall colors and cut our leaf shapes from the sponged art.  Here is a sample of the finished product.  It is great to see them using adjective in their writing now!

Here is a closer look at the freebie
