Teaching Adjectives and Verbs

Teaching your kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students about adjectives and verbs has never been MORE FUN! You'll use popping popcorn (either in a microwave or with an actual popcorn popper) to teach your students about adjectives and verbs, encouraging them to use their five senses to really experience the popcorn. This resource includes an engaging lesson plan, student activity sheet to use during instruction, adjectives and verbs sorting center and response sheet, craftivity, and 3 differentiated writing extension pages. Many teachers have used this during a formal observation with rave reviews from administration, but - most importantly - STUDENTS! I promise, your kiddos will LOVE IT!
