Adjective Games

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

Miss Pat heard from the English teacher that some of the “Can Do” Kids were having problems understanding the role of an adjective. So she made a few games up for them to play in computer class about the role of an adjective.

She thought if the learning were fun they might have an easier time understanding and remembering how to use the  adjective

Why not play along with the “Can Do’s and have some fun while getting good at using an adjective to describe a noun?

Go to the “Can Do” Club House, choose Games, then choose “What is?”

Have fun!
