    Hi there,
    I was at a workshop recently and the instructor gave an idea for teaching appositives.

    From a list of adjectives or character traits, have the students circle 6 that apply to their character ( in the independent or group book they are reading).

    On the list have some harder words that they need to look up in the dictionary.

    Have them then create sentences with appositives for character such as:

    Jesse, a diligent, or hard working, boy really wants his family to be more rich.

    The kids are writing appositives or descriptive phrases while analyzing characters...it seems like a great activity!
