Assignment: Adjectives

Create simple videos that demonstrate adjectives.


This video was created by a teacher in Trinidad and uses Moviestorm footage as well as stills and text.


Suggested techniques

Use both objects and text, in the style of Sesame Street, to help children build confidence with reading.

Create videos which encourage question and answers to test comprehension: for example, have two doors marked "red" and "yellow", then have a red car drive into shot, pause the video, and ask which one it should go through now.

For teachers: benefits to students

  • Younger children react well to videos, and this is an entertaining way to get across basic descriptive words and reading skills.
  • The same techniques can be used for any language.


  • Best created by teachers
  • English, literacy, foreign languages
