Warm Up and Preparation
- Distribute the parts of speech worksheet and have students cut out a long rectangle around each word for the part of speech. For example, they would cut out a rectangle around noun.
- Decide on a color for each part of speech and instruct students to shade their rectangles accordingly.
- Now have students label a page in their notebooks 'Parts of Speech' and glue each rectangle along the left margin side so that the left side of the rectangle is glued down and the right side can pop up.
- Distribute the lesson Parts of Speech: Lesson for Kids and read 'Building Blocks' and 'The Eight Parts of Speech' together.
- How are the parts of speech like building blocks?
- Next read the section 'Nouns' with students.
- Have students fold their 'Noun' rectangle to the left and write the definition on the space underneath along with a few examples.
- Repeat the process for pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and conjunctions.
- Read the section 'What Part of Speech is This?' with students and work through it together.
- Now divide students into partner pairs and give them eight slips of paper. Instruct them to brainstorm a word for each part of speech and record it on the slip.
- As students work, walk around the room to check for accuracy and guide when necessary.
- Label paper bags with the eight parts of speech and have students drop their slips into the correct bags.
- When everyone has finished placing slips into bags have students come back and remove a slip from each bag.
- Instruct groups to try to make a new sentence using each word from the slips. Allow them to add necessary words such as 'the' or 'and' when necessary. Sentences will likely be silly.
- Have each group share their sentence, identifying each part of speech.
- Read the 'Lesson Summary' together and take the quiz to check understanding.
- Give each student a blank bingo sheet and have them write the eight parts of speech in each square.
- Take the words students brainstormed from the lesson activity and use them to call to students.
- Students should cover the correct part of speech. For example, if you call 'dog,' students should cover a square labeled 'noun.'
- When they've covered their entire sheet, have them yell Bingo. The winner could get a small prize.
- Consider allowing the winning student to be the caller for the following game.
- Have students read sentences from magazines and highlight parts of speech in the same colors you coded in their notebooks.
