Kinetic Parts of Speech

Add a kinesthetic twist to your next lesson on the parts of speech. Kids in grades four through seven complete a variety of physical actions each time they hear a verb, noun, adjective, or pronoun. You read any sentence and then kids listen for the parts of speech you have prompted. Every time they hear that part of speech, they must perform the action indicated at the beginning of the lesson. For example: They need to hop every time they hear a verb and touch their heads every time they hear a noun. Clever!

I have really appreciated the connecting links to a variety of sources (i.e. National Geographic) and the teacher-tested lessons have been very helpful for me in planning my units. Thanks Lesson Planet!
