Learn attribute words and play adjective games!
Are you looking for a creative way to teach your attribute words (adjectives) lesson? Our Attribute Word Hop mat is just what you need! Introduce movement-based adjectives activities to the young readers in your class. Elementary students can move around and play while mastering the list of words on this floor mat.
The Attribute Word Hop floor mat lists 8 adjectives: small, big, short, tall, empty, full, heavy, light. These words are printed in large, kid-friendly type on colorful blocks to keep young students engaged visually.
Young readers may find identifying adjectives difficult, especially in addition to understanding other parts of speech such as nouns and verbs. The big list of adjectives makes a lot of fun activities possible during reading time. As a result, students will become familiar with 8 common attribute words.
Above all, physical activity activates students’ minds, boosts their learning comprehension, and improves their memory retention. In essence, activities such as stepping, hopping, skipping, and tracing all help students learn and remember literacy lessons better!
Furthermore, speaking and writing exercises are easy to add to your lesson plans. Adjective games can include reciting the words aloud, using the words in a sentence, writing the words on the whiteboard, or spelling the words. Additionally, this mat makes it easy to practice identifying opposites. Check out our activity database for ideas.

Sample Activity: Creating Sentences with Adjective Words
- Have students create a sentence using a word on the mat. Students will jump on the word as they use it in a sentence. Be creative!
- For example, the student will jump on the “small” block and say “The SMALL animal is scared.”
- You can have students select which word they want to use. Or try having them toss a bean bag to make it more random.
