Adjectives to Describe Things
Adjectives are words that help us describe things. Examples include big, small, funny, and happy. Adjectives can help us give more information about things. For example, a 'big red balloon' has more information than just 'balloon'. Using adjectives can help us make our writing more interesting and descriptive. Try it in your stories!
