Adjective Writing

As teachers, we know that just "knowing" about adjectives isn't enough. We need our students to use them in their own writings. This pack also includes a writing activity with two craft options.

  • Amazing Me! Students work through the writing process to complete this expository writing piece about what makes them amazing! Includes primary and regular writing lines and self assessment rubric. Choose from two different craft options for publishing!
