Worksheet: Recognizing Adjectives and Nouns

There are two things that matter in the adjectival scheme of things: the adjective itself and the noun it describes. Most of the time, an adjective comes just before the noun it describes, so it's no tall order to spot an adjective in a sentence. The trick with the noun is there may be multiple nouns in a sentence, and not every noun may have an adjective. So look for the noun that has extra detail added to it. In this printable adjectives worksheet, children read each sentence and underline the adjective and circle the noun it describes.

This free worksheet is tailor-made for students of grade 2 and grade 3.
