Teaching Adjectives: Post-it Notes

This was a fun, hands-on, run-around-the-classroom-’cause-it’s-the-end-of-the-day activity that I did with my first grade class this year.  We were working on adjectives and adjective ordering.  I gave each of the students 5 post-it notes and told them to pick any 5 objects in the room and describe them using two words.  Then, they could label the object with the post-it.  I had to tape most of the post-it notes because the adhesive was not strong enough.  I also had them put their names at the top of the sticky note.  I used this as an assessment to see who had mastered adjective ordering.  The kids loved this activity and it was great for helping with end of the day wiggles.
