What is this lesson?

Is the music loud? Is the bucket empty? Learn more adjectives in this lesson! Adjectives describe objects, giving more color and description to a sentence.

You learned about adjectives in The Jet DVD on the lesson Where is the Fast Car. This lesson builds on that one, but it does something a little different too. This lesson takes the sentence, "The umbrella is wet," and turns it into a question "Is the umbrella wet?" This is just another way you use modifying words to create new sentences out of a basic sentence pattern.

How do I teach this lesson?

This lesson introduces adjectives in sentences, both in statements and questions. The bed is soft. Is the bed soft? Adjectives can be used in many ways, and this lesson reflects that. In teaching this lesson, it's important to make it clear what the adjectives mean and what they are. But it's also important to teach how adjectives modify and expand the basic sentences taught way back in At the Zoo on The Zoo DVD.

Adjectives in this lesson are grouped in opposing pairs to make them easier to teach. Hot, cold. Wet, dry.

This lesson is very similar to the lesson Where is the Fast Car on The Jet DVD. In fact, it expands on it. Use this lesson together with that lesson to teach three important sentences: Is the umbrella wet? The umbrella is wet. Where is the wet umbrella?

Finally, take the material from both this lesson and the Where is the Fast Car lesson, and use it to expand on the sentences in these lesson: At the Zoo, What is He Doing, and What is the Boy Doing. The sentences should begin to multiply, turning into hundreds and thousands of combinations. If students have really developed a firm foundation in the basics, their ability to make sentences should skyrocket.
