FREE Negative Adjective Worksheets

As much as people like to look at the bright side and see the best in people, it is important that your students learn some negative adjectives as well. This will help them express themselves when things are not all bright and cheery. This worksheet is a creative way for students to practice some negative adjectives. It is just a simple practice exercise for after you have introduced and practiced the negative adjectives; students have to match descriptions of people with words like moody, rude, and irresponsible. There could not be a better comprehension check for these words but if you would like to use other vocabulary, it is easy to just switch out words and alter sentences. This is only one of the 23 free worksheets in the negative adjectives section. If you have worksheets on this topic, feel free to share them with other busy teachers by uploading them to this section of the website.
