What better way to practice employing the different parts of speech than through a song? Young scholars color code different parts of speech in song lyrics, working first as a whole group and then individually. The parts of speech covered include: nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, prepositions, pronouns, interjections, and conjunctions.
Picture this! A fun and engaging plan that supports learning parts of speech in the context of the real world. Learners photograph items that illustrate the different parts of speech using digital cameras, and then they insert the pictures into a slide show. Each picture is color coded (based on the part of speech) and has a sentence to accompany it. Although this is a great idea, this lesson will have to be supplemented with your own materials as the links for handouts and rubrics do not work.
This resource provides a brief but valuable discussion of nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. In addition to defining each term and including an example, this worksheet reminds students that a word's part of speech depends on how it is used. After this introduction, young grammarians answer 4 multiple choice questions in which the must define each part of speech and 11 short answer questions in which they must identify the part of speech of an underlined word from a sentence.
Nouns, verbs, pronouns...they're all covered here! This presentation gives a detailed look at each part of speech, but know that you cannott skip slides or start at any slide except for the first. Create a guide to keep your class focused and on track with the somewhat lengthy slide show.
What do farmers do? Introduce young agriculturists to this booming industry in a fun way, incorporating multiple studies and learning styles. Scholars read (or listen to) a brief informational text about the role of American farmers, specifically in Oklahoma. Discuss new vocabulary terms they hear, referencing the eight defined words included in this lesson (only some of these are in the text). Learners practice with parts of speech as they fill in blanks to complete two Ad Libs-style stories, both included, and then write their own for a classmate to fill in. A third story template is based on "The Little Red Hen," so consider reading the story with the class after they have filled it out. Extend this by asking kids to write their own agriculture-related fable.
Give your class the advantage of Thesaurus Power! They will use a thesaurus to understand word meanings and relationships. They focus on how a thesaurus functions and how it gives the entry word, definition, synonyms, antonyms, and part of speech. A worksheet is included.
Here is a terrific presentation to use as you are introducing the eight parts of speech to your class. Each of the parts of speech gets a thorough introduction, and many examples are given. There is a strong interactive component to this PowerPoint, which I believe will lead to better understanding. This is one of the better PowerPoints I've seen on the eight parts of speech.
