Toad by Ruth Brown in a fun Picture Book for Teaching Adjectives!
I love this great children’s book with descriptive language! It is the story of a horrible toad, a slimy, mucky, disgusting toad! The kiddos love the gross factor of the adjectives in this book! It follows the toad through the swamp where he almost meets his doom!
The illustrations are also fantastic! I use the printable worksheet (found for free below) to help the kiddos see that word choice matters when they are writing. We fill in the top with adjectives before we read. We get some good ones: bumpy, dry, brown…but then, we read Toad and the adjectives we write down after reading are so much more descriptive!
Then, I have my kiddos color a toad and write a description on the back using some of the fun adjectives that they found in this book on the front!
