In some cases the adjectives take a predicative position, especially when they are after the verbs BE, BECOME, GROW, LOOK and SEEM.
E.g. The cat is black.
The sandwiches look very tasty.
The train seems slow.
Children grow fast.
Choose different letters to form adjectives. Remember there is one blank for each letter. When the letter is not in the secret adjective a body part will be drawn on the hangman noose.
