Step 2: Teach Lesson
Ask the student if they know the story of the Three Little Pigs (the teacher can choose whichever story they like).
(If you are using the mini book we have provided, use this time to have the student help you put together their own mini book).
Ask them to look at the pictures and drawings as you read them the story of the Three Little Pigs. After reading the story, ask them
which pig they like and dislike in the story. Ask them why they like and dislike the pig which they answered. As they tell you their
reasons, write down all the adjectives that you hear in their answers. You can write the adjectives on the board.
Tell students that any word that describes things we like or dislike are called adjectives.
Have the student act out their favorite character from the story. Then describe the character they portrayed.
Then the teacher will act out their favorite character from the story and have the student describe the character you portrayed.
Remind the student that the words they are using to describe the characters are called adjectives.
Have the student write or draw at least two adjectives for every person, thing, place, or animal you randomly call out. They must write
it on their paper. If the student is having trouble spelling, write some adjectives on the board.
Ask the student to tell you what they learned about adjectives.
Have the student complete the worksheet below for extra practice.
