Learning About Adjectives

I was learning to add adjectives to give my sentences more meaning.
I have to remember to use adjectives that make the picture clear for my reader.
I thought this activity was hard because I had to think really hard to match them.
My best adjective was big because it just sounds good with that one.

My next step is to use adjectives in my own stories to make them interesting.
