Literacy : Awesome Adjectives (Display)

**Literacy is a key ingredient to teaching that you expect to find in any classroom. The ‘Awesome Adjectives’ display is a bright and colourful resource that can be used in any subject area to support students with high level pieces of writing. ** This giant ‘describing words’ wall is great for students to refer to whenever they have to complete written analysis tasks. After a class discussion about the meanings of some of the describing words, students can start using them regularly in their writing - leading to the use of high level vocabulary. Print each page on A3 paper to create your display!
