Reintroducing adjectives will look different between beginning 4th graders and beginning 5th graders. The standard for adjectives previous to fourth grade discusses how adjectives describe a noun and focuses mainly on numbers, colors, size, shape, and opinion. In 4th grade, students are introduced to the standard of ordering adjectives and are taught that origin and materials can be used as adjectives.
Therefore, a 4th grade adjective anchor chart will look different from a 5th grade adjective anchor chart.
For the 4th grade anchor chart, I used the acronym S.O.N.S. to help them remember some of the basic categories of adjectives. We also discus that color can be an adjective, but since those are pretty straight forward, we concentrate on what constitutes a "size," "opinion," "number," and "shape."
As part of the "we do," we share different adjectives and add them to the anchor chart using colorful sticky notes. I like to use sticky notes not only because it makes the words stand out but also because it allows me to reuse the chart.
Just as in the previous two activities, having students sort words is a great way to have them practice distinguishing between nouns, verbs, and adjectives.
Students can once again create them in their notebook, or you can assign a digital version to them.

I hope these nouns, verbs, and adjectives anchor charts and activities give you some inspiration for reviewing parts of speech whether you are working virtually or in person.
