The Kindergarten Adjective Runway Show was a huge hit among an audience of first and third graders. Each of the Kindergartners (and one teacher) was assigned adjectives and asked to personify their word, using props, gestures, and/or expressions as they bravely and enthusiastically walked the runway.

Watch the video.

This activity was designed to reinforce the skill of adding detail and descriptive words when writing. With a little preparation, practice, fun and applause, the students became their word, deepening their understanding of how, why and when adjectives should be used.
