These worksheets were created for Year 10 EAL students who needed help to build vocabulary for the GCSE exams. They would be helpful to any students wishing to expand their vocabulary or to write more concisely. The set includes tasks based on 12 adjectives that can be used instead of phrases using very. Worksheet 1 is a word matching table that works well as a group activity / think, pair, share / carousal activity. Worksheet 2 is a picture match activity. I usually do this as a recap / starter in a later lesson, to see what students remember from the word matching table task. Worksheet 3 is a cloze activity / gap fill activity where students add the words to paragraphs or sentences that show what the word mean.
