This is a very fun book on adjectives! Students can begin to make predictions as to what the next adjective will be in this hilarious and colorful book. I love the way the author makes grammar fun! This book could easily be used to encourage students to make their writing "juicy." In my 1st grade class, adjectives were something the students were having a hard time with. This would make for a great activating strategy in showing students how FUN adjectives can be. Students could get in small groups (teams), then could go around and describe random objects in the classroom! The first team to describe 7 objects using at least 3 adjectives would win!
