Parts of speech is still a difficult concept for my students. With examples and practice, they are getting it, but they still find it confusing. Here is the activity we did this week to practice using adjectives, nouns and verbs.
After generating some words for each category, we combined them to make 3 word phrases to create a poem. I used the posters from Surfin' Through Second as my category headers. These were very helpful.
Here are some of the poems that were created. The kids enjoyed decorating their papers as well.
After writing the poems, we started on some Spring murals. Here are some samples. They are still not finished.
Another activity we did this week was Seuss-inspired Mad Libs. This was lots of fun. The kids really enjoyed hearing the mad libs they created.
I plan on continuing with more mad libs. They are very engaging and they help students with parts of speech. There are many to choose from on Teachers Pay Teachers. I have found some great ones that I might share more about later on.
That's it for this time. Have a great weekend!
