Basic English Grammar Lesson 12: Adjectives

An adjective is a word that describes or modifies a noun or pronoun.

With the use of her colorful and soulful props, Marie demonstrates examples of the different forms of adjectives: proper adjectives, pronominal adjectives, qualitative or descriptive adjectives, quantitative adjectives, predicate adjectives, demonstrative adjectives, interrogative adjectives, singular possessive adjectives, plural possessive adjectives, and articles. "Adjectives are the beautiful paints with which we describe the canvas of our words."

Workbook exercises and answer key are provided with this lesson.

Featured Music:
Debussy - Golliwog's Cakewalk

I have been using this series throughout the summer with my homeschooled teens. We have all learned so much in just these twelve lessons. The music and method of this is engaging and relaxing. It makes teaching and learning grammar painless. I do wish some of the lessons in the workbook had a bit more practice, but no curriculum is perfect. Thank you Splashes From the River!!

Marie uses her Buddah as an example in this video and worksheet. As a Christian who wants to teach my children Biblical truth, I have decided not to use this program any longer.
