Word Work

Fall Adjectives - Word Work/Work on Writing

Last week we came up with a list of Fall adjectives.  We called them "WOW" words.  After making an anchor chart of Fall adjectives, the children picked one of the words. 

During word work they wrote the word using a white crayon and painted over the word with water colors.  They turned out beautifully.  The children had so much fun.

At writing time, the children wrote two sentences using the adjective on their leaves. 
Fall is cool.  I wear a jacket in the fall.  
Fall is pretty.  There are pretty leaves all over town.
