I just love the "Words that describe me" adjective activity that I've been doing for years and see that many of you do it, too. I always look forward to seeing the portraits and reading the words that the children write to describe themselves. I also have them fill out labels to describe the color of their shirt, pants, hair, etc. I promised Krista, over at Stellar Students that I would share the labels with her, so I figured I would share them here in case anyone else was interested. You'll notice that the labels I'm sharing with you today are much cuter than the ones I used in my activity. I made mine years ago, before I got all cutsie and such! I didn't want to share my plain, boring labels, so I quickly cutsied them up! I hope you find them useful. Just click on the image below to get a copy.
Here are some pictures from my class:
I just wanted to share with you some of the comments I received on this post. Susie Q, from Learning With Susie Q. mentioned that this would be a good beginning of the year activity. I agree and thought it could also be used at the end of the year and the children can draw a friend and label him/her with describing words. I think it would make a cute keepsake. It can even lead into a writing activity. (Example: Billy is funny because he is always making jokes.) Then, Kristy, from Teachin' First, said that she's going to have the children draw their moms and label them with adjectives. That is a super idea and I will probably do the same. I think all the moms would love this activity! Thanks for the great ideas Susie and Kristy!
