Fall is…

Reminiscing on the cool crisp days rather than the freezing cold ones that are randomly occurring. Oh what it’s like to live in the Midwest. Our strange weather made it a little challenging at first for the kids to put into words to describe fall.

We did quite a bit of group brainstorming to gather up some fabulous adjectives to help us describe fall. We came up with a grand list of descriptive words together and then transferred those to our own notebooks. We discussed that adjectives are words that describe and give details to our writing. 

I’ve really been working with the more advanced students on writing structure and writing stamina. So many of their sentences are straight forward or beginner writing. There’s always more to be said and some details we left out. Adjectives help us to better our writing and fully explain what we want to say. It’s the colorful sprinkles on top of the already delicious ice cream.
