Does anyone else think learning about parts of speech is fun?
If not, it’s possible that it’s just me.
When I learned about them years (and years) ago in school, I thought it was so neat that the words I read and used everyday had different functions.
If your students aren’t quite as thrilled about the parts of speech as I was, this pizza-themed adjective sorting activity is fun way to practice recognizing describing words!
If you’re reading a pizza-themed book with your class, this is a wonderful way to weave in some basic ELA practice.
Plus, it has a hands-on component that younger students will love!

Pizza Pie ELA! Adjective Sorting Activity
To use this pizza-themed adjective sorting activity, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
- Printer (with ink)
- Printer paper
- Child-safe scissors
- Glue stick
- Laminator (optional)
This ELA lesson lets students practice spotting and using descriptive words to describe everyone’s favorite food – pizza!
It’s designed as a one-time cut and paste activity, but you can easily adapt it for repeated use at centers.
Instructions are included on the activity, so you can just print and then hand them out to students.
They can look for the adjectives, cut them out, and then paste them onto the pizza as mushroom and pepperoni “toppings”.
Turn this into a reusable activity by laminating the pages. Then cut them out and let students use them again and again.
This would also make a great take-home activity for practicing parts of speech.
Students can assemble their pizzas at home and then bring them in the next day!
