Roadrunner Posted November 10, 2011 Share Posted November 10, 2011 My son's writing assignments always say to use as many describing words (which apparently at this stage only means adjectives) as possible. He is writing sentences that make me want to cry. Example: "A big colorful happy leaf was floating in the blue bright sky..." got the idea? When I try to tell him that adjectives should be used in moderation he won't listen. He is so proud of his ability to turn in 20 word sentences containing 10 adjectives. What do I do? :confused: We have WWE. Kilgallon is a bit too early for him, but sounds just right to deal with this issue. MCT writing is way too early for him as well. Any ideas??? He is in the first grade. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
