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.
Categorizing parts of speech is a skill to be taught throughout the elementary grades. Here is a colorful and appealing worksheet. It is a simply constructed graphic organizer that can be added to any unit, theme, story, or lesson. Adjectives, nouns, and verbs are sought out in any literature that is being used in the classroom. Try using during a cross-peer tutoring activity in which older learners help younger learners hunt for these parts of speech and use them in sentences.
Test learners' knowledge of parts of speech and sentence types with this 37 question multiple choice and matching quiz. Multiple choice questions provide examples that must be labeled as the correct part of speech or sentence type. The matching section provides definitions of parts of speech and sentence types that need to be matched to the correct term. Answers are not available for this exercise.
This online multiple choice quiz focuses on upper-level grammar concepts. In addition to covering simple parts of speech such as nouns, verbs, and adjectives, this resource also covers more advanced information, such as transitive vs. intransitive verbs. Test-takers are presented with sentences or phrases with an underlined word which they must identify. This quiz is interactive, so answers pop up immediately after one is submitted!
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 instructional activity (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.
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 activity will have to be supplemented with your own materials as the links for handouts and rubrics do not work.
A SMART board activity guides your class through this lesson on parts of speech, which focuses on Judi Barrett's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. After viewing the interactive presentation for a few class sessions, your young writers work on creating their own stories about fictional towns that rain food. It's a good way to review parts of speech, as well as get some creative writing in.
Review the use of the eight parts of speech by watching a presentation at a website. Sixth graders work in small groups to design a PowerPoint presentation that uses pictures and sound to teach the parts of speech. They write a quiz slide to be include in the presentation.
Students identify and differentiate between the eight parts of speech. After diagramming a sentence as an introductory activity, students create a set of flash cards to aid in the remembrance of the usage of the eight parts of speech. Each card should contain a definition and an example.
