Describing Your Dr. Seuss Character

I am learning to think of adjectives to describe my character.

I know I can do it when I can describe the character I have created.

This week you have created your own Dr. Seuss character. You have considered what they look like and what their personality might be like. Today you are going to have a go at describing your character!

Independent Task

Dr Seuss creates quirky crazy characters and so have you! What is so special about your character?

What physical traits, for example colours, clothes, size, movement etc. does your character have?

What personal traits or abilities does your character have? Are they funny, crazy, kind, brave, wild, groovy?

Your task today is to write some sentences to describe your character. Remember to use capital letters, full stops, adjectives and adverbs to make your sentences really interesting!

Try to write at least 5 sentences about your character.
