Five fun ideas to reinforce Spanish adjectives

      Adjectives on Stones
Here is a fun way to engage your older students in practicing adjectives.
You can purchase decorative stones or find stones and write the adjectives on them using white paint pens. (I used Sharpie oil based paint) You can get them at office stores for less than $3 (you can use either white or black color paint depending on the color of the stones)
It will help for students to be already familiar with the adjectives before doing the adjectives on stone.  Spanish adjectives flash cards will come in handy for learning and reviewing adjectives. I will provide a link at the end should in case you would like to purchase these adjectives cards.
Once students are more or less familiar with the adjectives the following activities can be done:

1.      Display the adjective stones in the classroom for reference and review.
2.      Have students pick up a stone to describe something or someone.
3.      Allow students to describe their friends by selecting stones to give to them. (you will need extra stones for this)
4.      Students can write on the stone an outstanding quality they like about someone and give that person the stone. (On one side of the stone they can write the person’s name and on the other side write the qualifying adjective of the person. (They could do it as a project for friends and or for family members)
5.      Play a game by selecting more than one qualifying adjectives to describe someone in the classroom. The group tries to guess who the person is. Select a student to describe someone in the classroom and have everyone else guess including the instructor.
These are just some ideas but I’m sure you will come up with some other ideas too! Feel free to share :-)

There is also another activity a came up with to help students practice and identify adjectives. This activity is called “Árbol de Adjectivos”  It’s a freebie on my TpT store.
