Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

This lesson is all about adjectives. So, adjectives are often called describing words because they single out characteristics of a noun such as its color or size. Be careful, though, as this description does not always help us distinguish adjectives from other parts of speech. So here are a few tips that help you find them. Adjectives can be used before a noun to let us know specifics about the noun. For example, “The red bus,” or, “A large umbrella.” Adjectives can also be used after the verb to be. For example, “The frog was green,” or, “The food was tasty.” What adjectives might you use to describe this dog? Did you say small or fluffy or white or did you think of a different adjective?
