Use adjectives and adverbs, and choose between them depending on what is to be modified. Developmental Appropriateness or Cross-curricular connections: At this stage of development, students are beginning to learn the different parts of speech including adjectives. After this lesson, students will be able to label their turkey with five appropriate adjectives. Students have already been using adjectives in their writing but this lesson will give meaning to the describing words that they have previously used. Assessment(s) of the Objectives: Pre-Assessment: I will ask the students if they can tell me what an adjective is as well as an example of an adjective. During- Assessment: As a class, we will pick out the adjectives in a few example sentences. We will decide on what the adjective is and then each students will either agree or disagree by giving a thumbs up or down. Post- Assessment: Students will complete a turkey that has five adjectives describing their turkey. Lesson Objective(s) Students will be actively involved in our class discussion on adjectives and be able to pick out the correct adjectives in our examples. Students will be able to label a turkey with five appropriate adjectives. Assessment(s) of the Objective(s) As a class, there will be examples on the board and the students will either agree or disagree with the word that was chosen to be the adjective in the example. Each students will create their own turkey with five feathers. Each feather will be labeled with and adjective that could be a possible adjective of a turkey. Use of Formative Assessment Students will be learning about the different parts of sentence structures and adjectives is one of those parts. The students will build off this information in the future when they learn about the different parts of a sentence.

Accommodations: This lesson will be done together for the first part and then finished with our turkey activity. Students who finish early will be able to present their turkey to the class and then turn them in to be hung on the wall.

Materials: SMART board, pencils, scissors, glue, crayons, construction paper, googley eyes, Is it an adjective group worksheet (on SMART board), Turkey Outline, School House Rock: Unpack Your Adjectives video, and Hairy, Scary, Ordinary: What Is an Adjective? By Brian P. Cleary. Procedures: I will ask the students if they can tell me what an adjective is as well as give me an example of an adjective. I will explain that an adjective is a word that describes a person, place, or thing. I will also give a couple examples of what an adjective is. o Curly, blonde hair o Tall, Cold mountains o Short and Skinny girl. We will watch the video, School House Rock: Unpack Your Adjectives on the SMART board. o What are some of the adjectives we saw in the video? o What was _________ describing? Is that a person, place, or thing? We will make a list on the SMART board of the adjectives that we saw in the video. We will then read the book, Hair, Scary, Ordinary: What is an Adjective? by Brian P. Cleary. o What are some of the adjectives we saw in the book? o What was _________ describing? As the students list the adjectives, I will add them to our list that we started after we watched the video. I will pull up a few examples on the board and we will vote on which words are adjectives. The students will either put a thumbs up or a thumbs down for each example. I will pull our list of adjectives up on the board as I pass out the supplies for the Turkey activity. I will instruct the students to color their turkey with appropriate colors o What color do you think a turkey might be colored? What color would you color the gobbler? o You can color your five feathers whatever color you want. Once you have colored your turkey, write an adjective on each feather that could describe your turkey. I will then tell the students how to glue their turkey together. I will give them googley eyes to use on their turkey. Once the students have finished their turkey, they will be able to present theirs to the class. Students will be able to finish their turkey later on in the day if they do not get it finished during our lesson time. Activity Analysis: The Adjective turkey is an interactive way to grab the students attention and help them remember the function of an adjective. The students will be able to have these on display so that everyone can relate back to their turkeys if they need help thinking of adjectives. The students will also be able to put their own twist on creating their turkey in whatever way they want. We will use the SMART board for many things today. The video will be shown using the SMART board as well as the list of adjectives that we make will also be on the SMART board.
