Starter #2 Yesterday we learned about adjectives. What’s an adjective?

An adjective modifies (tells more about) a noun.

An adjective always answers one of three questions. What are those questions?

Which one?

What kind?

How many?

What two kinds of adjectives did we examine yesterday?

Predicate adjective: When the noun/subject is followed by a linking verb and the adjective appears in the predicate.

Example: The puppy became frisky.

Starter #3Perhaps the easiest adjective to identify is the “proper adjective.” Does this term remind you of any other term you are familiar with?

“proper noun”

What is a “proper noun”?

It’s a noun that names a particular person, place, thing, or idea.

A “proper adjective” is an adjective formed from a proper noun.

Sometimes it is identical to the proper noun from which it was formed. Guess what is true about all proper adjectives?

They all begin with a CAPITAL LETTER.

Examples:

the Wyoming foothills

Chinese checkers
