Hairy, Scary, Ordinary: What Is an Adjective? - Brian P. Cleary,Jenya Prosmitsky

This book is a creative, colorful, and exciting way to to introduce adjectives to students by whimsical illustrations and funny sentences. I would use this in my classroom to introduce the idea of adjectives in sentences, and then guide the students to make sentences using adjectives and to circle them. I would use this for many elementary ages, but is ideal for 2nd grade. This book is Lexile Level NP. Great for usage in the classroom.

Fancy Nancy is my favorite series for lower elementary grades. It tells the adventures of a young girl and it is an easy read. The students could read the story and do a lesson on adjectives. Also, the students could have a lesson on character analysis considering Nancy is a very interesting character. This story is also a good introduction to synonyms because there are many words in this book that may be new to most students. The class could explore these words and what they mean as well as create a chart to draw connections to similar words.

Hairy, Scary, Ordinary is part of a great series on different parts of speech. It teaches about adjectives. The illustrations and text are engaging. 

 

I would use this book to introduce or review adjectives. We could identify adjectives we see around the room, or work in groups to identify the most adjectives in the room in a time frame.

I had fun reading this book! It is such a cute and fun story that kids can enjoy with so many different descriptive words that they will love! This book would be specifically great for 1st grade and has a Lexile level of 420L. This would be good to use on a day when you discussed parts of a sentence such as adjectives in your classroom! The teacher could let the students create an "awesome adjectives" chart and have students come up and write/draw an example. So many endless possibilities with this book!
