Hello everyone! I’ve finally figured out a way to add candy corn to a worksheet! (I do love me some candy corn in October!) Anyway, here’s a simple adjectives activity for your students. Have them come up with two adjectives about each Halloween noun, and then color the candy corn (built-in “fast finisher” for your speedy students). Have a great Halloween!
It’s that time of year… the weather’s getting warmer and the kids are getting really squirmy! Must be the end of the school year! But learning’s not over (it never really is, right?)! Here’s a summer-themed language arts activity for kids that reviews grammar and helps them create a poem about summer time! Click here for the PDF: Grammatical Poetry- Summer
Another grammar practice activity! This one’s disguised as poetry and centers around springtime. So grab your bonnet and sit among the flowers while you work on this language arts activity!

This was kind of a random idea I thought I’d throw out there and see what happened. I made a parts of speech worksheet where kids need to identify nouns and adjectives in jokes. This proved to be more interesting than anticipates, as jokes don’t always follow standard conventions. But it sure provided a great opportunity to discuss how the same word can be different parts of speech depending on how it’s used. I recommend this for mid-level grades ans upper elementary.
One of the Common Core standards for first grade is “Use common, proper, and possessive nouns (CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.1.1b).” Kids first have to first know what common and proper nouns are. Here’s my second worksheet to help kids understand the difference between the two kinds of nouns. In the worksheet, students match a common noun with its proper noun counterpart.
The lower grade standards for the Common Core all deal with singular and plural nouns in one form or another. I loved this border and I just had to use it on a worksheet! Students are given a singular noun and have to write the plural noun. Here’s my free singular/plural nouns worksheet that centers around food!
