  • Have used this as an activity with a writing group to work on using descriptive words when writing a narrative.

  • Hi, can't tell if I'm missing something here but are a large number of these not actually adjectives? "Spell", "cloak", "armour" - these would more be nouns that the character possesses? For a lesson that focuses on adjectives, I feel these would muddy the water.

    • Hi emmatalbot,
      Thanks for commenting and I'm sorry you're having trouble downloading this resource.
      I've taken a look at and it appears to download properly for me here. It is taking a while, so keep an eye on the blue bar at the top. It won't open until the bar is showing. Our helpful FAQ page should provide a solution, but if you're still having trouble, let me know and I'll have another look at this right away for you!
