These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Adjective and Adverbs topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Play by Play

Together with your child, listen to a sportscast on the radio. Have your child pay attention to the sportscaster and how he or she describes the game. What kind of adjectives and adverbs were used? Then do an activity together, such as cooking, cleaning, or gardening. Have your child narrate the activity just like a sportscaster. Encourage him or her to be creative and use plenty of adjectives and adverbs.

Brainstorm Storm

There are many ways to describe one thing! Have your child imagine a storm and come up with as many adjectives as possible to describe it. To challenge your child, put a time limit on the brainstorming session. How many adjectives can your child come up with in five minutes? Two minutes? You can repeat the activity using other nouns.
