1. Having read the book The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan, discuss the meaning of adjectives and why we use them (make our sentences more interesting).

Using the IWB activity above, ask students come up and move the adjectives to the appropriate boxes to describes the nouns in the picture. Discuss and model one with class. Students can suggest additional adjectives other than those in the word bank.
